346 Students 
Open Fall Term 

fYosh Events Held Despite 

Beginning Wednesday, October 1, 

n d continuing to Saturday, October 
I t he annual Freshman Week was ob- 
eyed on the campus of Lebanon Val- 
ley College. The fact that classes 
were begun the day after the opening 
f college did not prevent the fulfil- 
ment of a program of lectures and ex- 
aminations as well as social events for 
the benefit of the freshmen. 

Wednesday, October 1, was marked 
by the registration of the new and old 
students in the Administration Build- 
ing. Statistics garnered from the Reg- 
istrar's office and the 1941-42 Lebanon 
Valley College Bulletin reveal the fact 
that there has been a decrease of 22 
students over the 1940-41 term, which 
can be attributed to the present Na- 
tional Emergency and the availability 
of high-paying jobs. Despite the gen- 
eral decrease in enrollment the Fresh- 
man class boasts an increase of one 
student over its predecessor of a year 
ago. With an enrollment of 114, six- 
ty-three of which are boys, and fifty- 
one girls, this same class takes top 
honors for the 1941-42 session. 

With a decrease of two, the Sopho- 
more class runs second with eighty- 
six students. Tied at seventy-three 
students and with a decrease of nine 
and eleven, the Junior and Senior 
classes complete the record. As for 
the boy-girl ratio, the boys outnumber 
the girls by an even 200 to 146. 

On Wednesday evening the Y. W. 
C A. and Y. M. C. A. hike and camp- 
fire was held despite threatening 

Opening Exercises were held in 
Engle Hall Thursday morning, and the 
seventy-seventh term was inaugurat-

Dresel Leads 
New Pep Squad 

Robert Dresel, a member of the 
senior class, has assumed the task of 
recruiting this year's cheer leaders 
from among the members of the stu- 
dent body. Try-outs were held on Mon- 
day. Four freshman fellows and one 
senior have signified their willingness 
to assist Mr. Dresel in leading the 
students in cheers during the year. 
They are Pete Olenchuk, the senior, 
George Huff, John Schreiber, Charles 
McConnell, and Jack Pruyn. 

The above mentioned recruits are 
being tutored in the art of cheer lead- 
ing by Mr. Dresel, and they will dem- 
onstrate their respective abilities at a 
short pep session to be held this eve- 
ning immediately after the evening 
meal in front of North Hall. At that 
time they will endeavor to arouse some

Lancaster Opens 
Concert Series 

The first Community Concert of the 
year will be held Friday night, Octob- 
er 10, at 8 o'clock, in the McCaskey 
High School Auditorium at Lancaster 
with Dorothy Maynor, soprano, as the 
artist. Miss Maynor is highly acclaim- 
ed as a soprano, and with her warm, 
friendly, and charming manner, she 
captivates her audiences even before 
she begins to sing. A born musician 
and a great artist, Miss Maynor is 
very modest about all her successes 
and when asked questions only replies, 
"I just like to sing." 

The other artists to be presented in 
Lancaster and Lebanon include: 

Richard Crooks, tenor. 

The Trapp Family Singers. 

Josef Hofmann, pianist. 

Malcolm and Godden, duo-piano. 

Cleveland Symphony Orchestra. 

Tickets for these concerts may be 
obtained this week in the Conserva- 
tory office.

Science Dept. 
Claims INewProf 

The Faculty of the Science Depart- 
ment of Lebanon Valley College was 
augmented at the beginning of the 
1941-42 term by the appointment of 
Dr. Germain Porter as a member of 
that body. 

A native of Hagerstown, Maryland, 
Professor Porter attended Cornell 
University where he received both his 
A.B. and Ph.D. degrees. Before ac- 
cepting his present position at Leba- 
non Valley College, he served as a 
.member of the faculty at Union Col- 
lege, Schnectady, New York, where 
he taught Chemistry. 

The addition of Dr. Porter to the 
local faculty is a great asset. The 
entire Science program can be ex- 
panded. Because Dr. Porter has been 
assigned to teach Chemistry 18 and 
Physics 18, Dr. Bender will be able to 
apply himself entirely to the advance 
Sciences and Research. 

A man of few words and diligent 
labor, Dr. Porter had a ready answer 
to the common query, "Have you any- 
thing to say to the student body?" 
Without much ado, he said, "I have 
nothing to say. They'll hear enough 
from me during the year." 

Dean Announces

In an episode more thrilling and 
more realistic than any dime novel 
mystery, Walter Ebersole, an ex-sen- 
ate member, last evening shot and fa- 
tally wounded his former room-mate, 
Richard Beckner, immediately after 
the latter had left the company of 
Ebersole's charming Miss Janet 
Schopf. The cold-blooded murder oc- 
curred in front of the men's dormitory 
at approximately one minute after 

Three of the four shots fired by the 
incensed gunman struck their objec- 
tive. Donald Glen, an eyewitness, saw 
the victim fall and the attacker rush 
to a car which carried him in the di- 
rection of the Water Works where he 
supposedly intended to hide out in an 
old cabin. 

The shots brought curious people 
from every point and soon a circle 
was formed about Beckner. From the 
crowd gathered on the scene of the 
crime the distraught Miss Schopf, lat- 
er alleged as the cause of the deed, 
pushed through to the dying man. Af- 
ter struggling with those trying to 
hold her from Beckner, she collapsed 
in a faint of exhaustion. 

Arising to the occasion President 
Mease, of the Men's Senate, formed a 
posse to track down the escaped mur- 
derer while Procter Intrieri took 
care of the rapidly sinking Beckner. 
Within a short time the Lebanon am- 
bulance rushed the wounded man to 
the hospital where blood transfusions 
were proferred by several L. V. stud- 
ents including Paul Mateyak and Don- 
ald Rettew. 

While the posse was hunting down 
the criminal, hysteria reigned within 
the girls' dormitories. Under the ten- 
sion of thes ituation plus the genuine 
feeling of concern for both of the men, 
many of the girls cracked. First aid 
was administered as well as possible 
by the calmest of all groups, the fresh- 
men, who were the only ones who 
seemed able to give any help. 

Within an hour after the trigger 
was pulled Ebersole was drug back to 
the campus by the group of the posse 
which was so efficient in tracking him 
down. Never ceasing to struggle, he 
was led through the mob to Philo 

At a special hearing held in this 
room with John Witmeyer acting as 
magistrate the raving murderer con- 
fessed the slaying of his friend. Pro- 
fessor Chris Gingrich, deputy district 
attorney, brought forth sufficient evi- 
dence to commit the ex-senator to jail 
to await trial. Eye-witnesses Albert 
Morrison, Donald Glenn and Beckner's 
room-mate, Robert Mandle, all tes- 
fied concerning the fatal shooting, 
during which time the former vice 
president of the Y. M. C. A. not only 
broke down and confessed the slaying 
but also threatened Mandle's life if he 
ever got free.

Our Policy .... 

It is necessary that the school paper 
establish at the beginning of each 
year a policy to which it can hold. 

La Vie Collegienne is the Lebanon 
Valley students' weekly publication. 
It attempts to be representative of 
every group and individual on the 
campus. This is possible only when all 
add their bit to make it so. 

Therefore any signed article placed 
in the La Vie box in the library or 
given to one of the editors will re- 
ceive careful attention and space when 
it so merits. Although we print no 
anonymous contributions the paper will 
reveal no identities if the writer so re- 
quests. For no reason will this con- 
fidence be broken. 

All suggestions from both faculty 
and students are of infinite value to 
the paper while constructive criticism 
is of equally limitless help. 

Since La Vie is printed but once a 
week its scope of news is naturally 
small. With the existing grape-vine 
gossip system the traditional "scoops" 
are too few. To supplement our pledge 
to meet your requirements we appeal 
for the cooperation and first-hand in- 
formation from all campus organiza- 

Prediction .... 

We have six new cheer leaders who 
are going to give their hearts and 
hopes, cheers and calisthenics to lead 
this student body in displaying its pep. 
By no means are we writing an edi- 
torial about getting more school spirit. 
We are predicting continued spirit as 
shown by the "Y's" opening week, the 
way the school activities have gotten 
oft 3 to a rapid start, and THE MUR- 

From the Wings 

The first dramatic honors of the 
year go to one named "Charlie!" On 
Saturday night Charlie made his ori- 
ginal entrance onto the LVC stage 
via the center aisle of the chapel. All 
week while plans were being made for 
the "Y" joint session there was a good 
deal of curiosity about who would take 
the part of the already famous Quit- 
tie character. Then, padded with pil- 
aws and dressed in a very large coat 
and shirt, Donald Glen staggered 
down the aisle as Charlie and a new 
star of pantomime was introduced to 
our campus! Not everybody has a 
stage debut like that, Glen. Incident- 
ally the playwrites who composed 
most of these rollicking lyrics were 
Gen Stansfield and Walter Ebersole. 

"What Every Woman Knows" is 
the final choice for the Wig and Buc- 
kle play which is to be given on No- 
vember 14 — just one month from the 
day for tryouts. Mentioning tryouts 
reminds me that President Don Bart- 
ley wants you all to know that every- 
one is invited to try out — not just Wig 
and Buckle members, but any person 
on Lebanon Valley campus that has 
the interest plus a little talent! Tues- 
day, October 14, is the day and you 
may come at 4:30 or at 7 P. M. to 
room 16 of the administration build- 
ing. Freshmen, and transfer students, 
especially, come out and show us what 
you have in the way of dramatic tal- 
ent. "What Every Woman Knows" is 
one of the well known Barrie comedies 
that are favorites with all audiences 
and we have hopes that it will be a 
great success at L. V. C. There are 
all types of parts to be filled with even 
the chance to use some Scotch dia- 
logue or a French accent for those who 
like it, so come and see if there isn't 
a part just for you. 

Regular Wig and Buckle members, 
there will be a business meeting soon 
although the date is yet to be an- 
nounced. The executive committee is 
already enthusiastic about this first 
production and there are plenty of 
plans afoot for both the advertising 
and the producing ends. When this 
play is completed the club will ar- 
range a schedule of one act plays 
which will be student directed pro- 
ductions. Like last year, the seniors 
will do the directing and the under- 
classmen will be invited to act in the 
plays. Seniors, get your bids in soon 
for the play and date that you want 
if you prefer to direct one in the next 
few months. And, remember, no roy- 
alty plays! 

Did you theatre-goers know that 
"There Shall Be No Night" is to be 
in Harrisburg on the fifteenth and

Calendar .... 

For the satisfaction of everyone 
concerned, for a really productive 
school year, for organizations' func- 
tioning in more than name alone let's 
consider this matter of the school cal- 
endar. It is a dull subject but it will 
certainly brighten the campus if this 
little matter can be arranged by co- 
operating groups and early considera- 
tion. Although we can't add nights to 
the week we can learn to omit one of 
two things — either overlapping activi- 
ties or overlaping members. 

that "Life With Father" is coming to 
Hershey on October 13? "Play -going" 
is to be an important part of Wig and 
Buckle activity this year. Some of you 
will recall our expeditions to Harris- 
burg and Hershey last year. We want 
to repeat some of those evenings be- 
cause of the good times we had and 
because of the dramatic inspiration 
the professional performances usually 
give. "Spring Meeting" is the first 
fall production of the Harrisburg 
Community Theatre and after that 
there will be a whole winter's sched- 
ule to follow. These two plays that 
I have mentioned are too close to ar- 
range for us to see either one in a 
group, but there is going to be plenty 
of opportunities for "play-going" in 
the near future. probably at re- 
duced rates! 

Remember — tryouts for the Wig 
and Buckle play will be held on Tues- 
day, October 14.

"The first now in Germany in seri- 
ous musical art": so reads the degree 
bestowed on Johannes Brahms by the 
University of Breslau on March 11, 
1879. In order to receive this honor 
Brahms first had to gain fame in the 
European world of music; and then he 
was asked by the faculty to compose 
a thesis in the form of a doctor's 
symphony. This thesis, truly unique 
in that field, was The Academic Fes- 
tival Overture described by Brahms 
himself as: "A potpourri on student 
songs a la Suppe." However this self- 
imposed definition is really not justi- 
fiable; for the composition is better 
described by the biographer of 
Brahms, Max Kalbeck, as: "An ode 
to the spirit of freedom, comradeship, 
and joy of living at the old German 
universities." Kalbeck's statement 
fully expresses the theme of this mag- 
nificent composition which contains in 
it several songs that in this day seem 
paradoxical in comparison with the 
Germany in which Brahms lived. One 
finds in the opening phrases of the 
composition The Hungarian Marseill- 
aise of 1848, and The Paris Entrance 
March of 1813 which symbolizes the 
emergence of the spirit of liberation 
from the armies of military conquest, 
and from the oppressive reaction of 
post-Napoleonic Europe. In addition 
to these compositions and the original 
thematic phrases of Brahms himself 
there are four student songs used in 
The Academic Festival Overture; We 
Had Built A Stately House, Der Land- 
esvater, and The Fuchslied or fresh- 
man hazing song in which the upper 
classmen ask the freshman imperti- 
nent questions about his family and 
then give him a pipe too strong for 
his weak freshman lungs. 

A brilliant climax to the overture 
is afforded by the stirring Gaudeamus 
Igitur, a student song in protest to 
the police surveillance in the German 
university towns. Since the conclusion 
is written in the key of C major it 
parallels the coda of Beethoven's 
Fifth Symphony. All lovers of classi- 
cal music cannot help praising this 
composition as one of Brahm's great- 
est works. 

The collector of records will find 
The Academic Festival Overture re- 
corded on Columbia by the New York 
Philharmonic Orchestra under the 
direction of John Barbirolli. Even 
more appealing to the ear of your col- 
umnist is the older recording by the 

Last year's crop of couples is doing all

springing up, there's liable to be in-

Dean Stonecipher 
Addresses Torch 

A paper on student attitudes toward 
the present world crisis was presented 
the Torch Club of Harisburg on Sat- 
urday evening, October 4, by Dr. A. 
H. M. Stonecipher, Dean of the Col- 
lege. The material for the paper was 
based on articles appearing in the 
August, September, and October, 1940 
issues of the Atlantic Monthly Mag- 
azine and the May and August 19 41 
issues of the American Mercury Mag- 
azine. These articles consisted of a" 
arraignment of college students 
their apparent lack of interest in t e 
world situation and the answers 
several students to the charges tna 
had been thrust at them. . 

Trends in student opinion on va^ 
ous questions relating to conscnP ^ 
defense, and aid to the allies, w 
noted in a report taken from the ^

thought. The most recent attitu ide

amsterdam Concertgebourg under the 
direction of Mengelberg. For extreme 
brilliance of tone the more recent re- 
cording is the better one. On the 
fourth side of the two record album

the Birthday Cantata. After the Sto-

was snowed under by a host of op- 
osing linemen. In an effort to save 
^aidage the Freshman back attempted 
to throw a short pass to Matt Maley 
l^t it was intercepted by Al Neff who 
scored standing up and that was the 
ball game. In respect to Matala who

The Dutchmen's only score of the 
contest came midway in the second 
period when Lebanon Valley was in 
possession of the ball on their own 
thirty-five yard line. After failing 
to gain on a line play, Beshore drop- 
ped back and shot a short pass to Don 
Staley who took the ball on his own

Secondary to score. Matala's place 
kick for the extra point was wide, so 
the score remained 6-0. 

In the closing minutes of the first 
half Moravian unleashed a passing 
attack which resulted in their first 
score. Using a spread formation 
Griffith passed to Levy for 15 yards to 
put the ball on their own 45 yard line. 
Two line plays lost 5 yards and then 
Rosetti tossed to Levy for a first down

Five Freshman Win 
Berths on First Eleven 

Head Coach "Jerry" Frock and line 
coach "Mike" Intrieri met a group of 
30 gridders on September 9th who 
were candidates for the 1941 Flying 
Dutchmen eleven. Since that time sev- 
eral members have left the squad so 
that at present the team roster is com- 
posed of 25 names. 

.Twelve holdovers from last year's 
squad reported for practice which had 
been delayed one week because of the 
infantile paralysis ban extended over 
Lebanon County which has also affect- 
ed other collegiate elevens in nearby 
sectors. Seven of these gridmen were 
lettermen last fall. Included in this 
group is Staley, Shay, Matala, Emin- 
hizer, Schmaltzer, Hall and Dorazio. 
Others returning for another crack 
at the game are: Smith, Carr, Swope, 
Kubisen and Newbaker. Lettermen 
"Ed" Schillo and "Art" Russo did not 
return to college this fall. Captain- 
elect Schillo was caught in the mat- 
rimonial draft and joined the ranks 
of the benedicts, declining to return 
for his senior year at college. No ex- 
planation has been given for the fail- 
ure of tackle Russo to report for the 
daily pre-season drills. 

After two and a half weeks of 
double practice per day, Coach Frock 
had sized his proteges up fairly well 
and had placed them in the positions 

/iiere they might be of the most aid 
to the Blue and White gridiron, aggre- 
gation. Coach Intrieri had been dril- 
ling his linemen on the fundamentals 
and tricks of line play, so that they 
appeared to have acquired enough pol- 
ish to meet the best of teams on an 
equal footing. 

In the line, Ben Wasileski stole a 
march on Senior "Kid" Swope and 
won out for the pivot position. Wasi- 

_sKi has started both contests to date, 
the guard slots, quite a battle en- 

ued for the starting berths with 

r'mchy" Eminhizer and "Jabber" 
Shay finally receiving the nod. These 
two lettermen along with "Johnny" 
Hall have alternated at either guard 
position for the games to date. Shay 
was named by Frock as Captain in 
both tussles. Two freshmen "Lewie" 
Reinhold and Leo Halkovich have been 
held in reserve to assist these three 
veteran guards if the occasion de- 

Big "Hank" Schmaltzer again took 
over the left tackle position and has 
been assigned an understudy, by name, 
Joe Fiorelli. At the right tackle post, 
"Dave" Lutz and Paul Mateyak put 
up a fight for the job with the former 
getting the starting call. Both these 
men are hard chargers and heady ball 

ayers and can be relied upon in a 

all game. 

"Don" Staley, senior letterman, won 
out over "Joe" Carr for the right end 
assignment. Carr has been called up 
to relieve the veteran Staley on sev- 
eral occasions. "Bill" Racine, husky 
freshman, was given the call at the 
left end position in the Bucknell game 
but gave way to senior "Steve" Kub- 
isen in the Moravian contest because 
of a leg injury. 

In the backfield it was a tough job 
deciding upon a starting quartet and 
/rock was in a quandry as to whom 
to throw at the opponents in the sea- 
son's opener. Holdovers "Harry" Ma- 
tala and "Nick" Dorazio and fresh- 
men "Tank" Beshore and blocking 
back Naley were turned on the field 
as the starting backfield. George 
Smith, the speed merchant, had been i

Don Staley 
. . . who scored lone tally for L. V. C. 
in tussle with Moravian last Friday 


No Lebanon Valley athlete is more 
deserving of receiving the honor of 
being the first to be reviewed in this 
column than Don Staley, husky right 
end on this year's gridiron machine. 

It was Don who tabbed the Flying 
Dutchman's score under the arcs in 
Bethlehem Friday night. Grabbing a 
pass from Beshore, he sprinted sixty- 
five yards with the pointed oval under 
his arm for the game's longest run. 
Not only is Don known for his skill in 
snaring the ball, but also for his re- 
liability as a defensive player. It was 
he who teamed with Grabusky of the 
1940 eleven to make the combination 
which was responsible for the numer- 
ous losses in yardage suffered by op- 
ponents of the Blue and White. 

Don hails from a small town high 
school that has produced more than 
one outstanding athete. After he fin- 
ished his scholastic career at Colum- 
bia, Pa., he came to this institution of 
higher learning to continue his educa- 

Although he never played football 
in high school he decided to try his 
hand at the game. A better decision 
has never been made. Since that time 
his play at the pivot position has won 
him the plaudits of all L. V. follow- 

Don's athletic abilities do not stop 
with football. He is an outstanding 
luminary on the basketball floor where 
he teamed up to become an important 
cog in the famous sophomore team of 
'39 and went on to retain that posi- 
tion on last year's quintet. 

As Don is a three-letter man, there 
is still another sport at which he ex- 
cells— baseball. This is perhaps his 
best. A heavy hitter and an excellent 
infielder, he has been an outstanding 
performer on the diamond. 

In whatever game it may be, foot- 
ball, basketball, or baseball, he has 
always been a fighter. Now he is get- 
ting ready to run for his last touch- 
downs for Lebanon Valley. With this 
spirit that he has shown we feel cer- 
tain that he cannot fail in his next 
great battle. All we can say is, "He'll 
be hard to replace." 

laid low with a bad case of skin poi- 
soning but was back in shape to start 
the second contest when Dorazio was 
on the sidelines with a dislocated el- 
oow which he received in the Bucknell 
fiasco. Among them held in reserve 
as substitutes are Sophomore New- 
baker, and freshmen "Van" Vantres- 
ser, Carl Huldin, Bob Beck and a lan- 
ky boy named Harringer. 


From all appearances it seems as though the 1941 edition of Flying 
Dutchmen have got what it takes to win ball games but have thrown two 
contests into their opponents' laps by reason of lapses of memory and sud- 
den let-downs at the most inopportune moments. The Bucknell fray saw 
the Valley men overcome a 6-0 lead of the home club when Steve Kubisen 
picked a blocked punt and dashed into pay-dirt to the surprise of 5000 spec- 
tators, both teams, and perhaps himself. At that point the Dutchmen de- 
cided to rock back on their heels to watch the game as though from the 
bleachers. To the dismay of our valiant Blue and White gridders, the Lew- 
isburg outfit surged over the field to a second six-pointer in short order. 
That score brought the Frockmen from their suddenly assumed lethargy 
as the Valleyites played a stubborn game until the final whistle. 

On the trip to Bethlehem last Friday evening, the L. V. C. gridmen 
battled the Greyhounds in their own backyard until big Don Staley grabbed 
an aerial over the line and then jogged over half the length of the field for 
the first score of the game and give the Valley a 6-0 advantage. The sur- 
prised Timm-coached lads could not advance through the line and took to 
the air with 4 minutes of play remaining in the first half. Three passes were 
completed in succession with the last one connecting for a T. D. with only 
a minute and a half remaining. 

The unbeaten Moravian club returned with renewed spirits at half time 
but still could not reach the goal line as the Blue and White line finally held 
or attempted passes were batted down by the L. V. C. secondary and ter- 
tiary. As the game neared its end the Dutchmen play-caller called for a 
flat pass which was promptly snagged by an alert Moravian defender and 
turned into a touchdown jaunt and victory for the home team. If we look 
at it properly, the Frock-men were not defeated in the game. They were 
only defeated in 4 minutes of play — 2 minutes at the end of both halves. 

These sudden let-downs not only mean loss of yardage but in this last 
contest meant victory for a team that can hardly be called superior to the 
Blue and White outfit. Add to these miseries the large amount of yardage 
lost by reason of penalties and recall of several long gains because of off- 
side plays by the Dutchmen and we find the cause of this last fiasco. 

Bucknell U. Bisons 
Down L. V. Gridders 
By 12-7 Count 

By holding the highly-favored Buck- 
nell University eleven to a 12-7 count, 
Lebanon Valley opened its 1941 foot- 
ball season in grand style. Not only 
did they hold their vaunted rivals to a 
low score but they threw a real scare 
into the Bisons by putting up a hot 
argument all during that broiling 
afternoon on the sun-baked gridiron. 

Lebanon Valley showed consider- 
able strength in the opening minutes 
of play but co-captain Melvin- Knupp 
solved the Dutchmen's defense and 
ripped away for considerable gains 
to put the homesters in scoring posi- 
tion for the first time in the contest. 

A slight injury forced Knupp to 
leave the game at this point although 
he returned later in the fray. In his 
place entered the thorn in the side of 
L. V. C. — a blonde swivel-hipped back 
by the name of Fred Fahringer, who, 
after a slight gain, romped his way 
twenty-four yards through the Dutch- 
men's secondary for the first Bucknell 
score and followed it up by a forty- 
three yard jaunt in the second quarter 
on an identical play. 

Enraged by this treading of the 
Blonde Bison over their goal line, the 
Dutchmen bucked up and retaliated 
with seven points gotten when "Hank" 
Schmalzer charged through and block- 
ed Reichert's punt in the waning 
moments of the first quarter, which 
"Steve" Kubisen picked up on the 
eleven yard line and scooted across 
the broad stripe. Harry Matala added 
the point by virtue of a place kick. 

Although the Bisons were forced to 
fight with their backs to the wall 
throughout the third stanza, L. V. C. 
failed to capitalize on these marches 
into easy scoring territory. It was in 
this period that Nick Dorazio, who had 
set Bucknell back on its heels more 
than a few times by his booming punts 
and quick kicks, suffered a dislocated 
elbow and was forced to leave the 

Assistant Coach Mike Intrieri's 
linemen outfought the heavier Orange 
and Blue forward wall most of the 
afternoon and except for Fahringer, 
they usually stopped the Bucknell 
backs before they got started. In this 

Frosh Girls 
Hike With WA A 

Oh Tuesday evening the Women's 
Athletic Association held its annual 
autumn hike with the Freshmen and 
transfer students as guests. The group 
met at North Hall, and from there 
walked about three miles to a spot 
along the Quittapahilla, where the 
hikers found comfortable parking 

The first feature of the program 
was, of course, a song fest, under the 
^apable leadership of the hiking lead- 
er, Phoebe Geyer. Incidentally, "Pete" 
merits honorable mention for engi- 
neering this affair so successfully on 
such short notice. Mary Mehaffey did 
her bit on the program by managing 
a guessing game — that old how-many- 
beans-in-the-jar institution; Frosh 
Mary Brown captured the prize. 

Miss Henderson's arrival with the 
victuals cut short the entertainment. 
While half the girls ate baked maca- 
roni, pickles, plums, etc., the rest of 
the crowd cooked hamburgers over 
the fire built by Ruth Haverstock and 
Margaretta Carey. When the W. A. A. 
-ers reached the place where everyone 
was stuffed to a degree beyond com- 
placency, Prez Marjorie Holly took 
over. After heartily welcoming the 
newcomers, Holly introduced the cab- 
inet members, and explained the func- 
tion of each individual. The outing 
wound up with the singing of the Al- 
ma Mater. 

Bobbie Herr deserves a pat on the 
back for her management of the re- 
freshment angle of this hike, the most 
successful in the history of W. A. A., 
as there were approxiately 80 in at- 
tendance. It was successful, too, in 
that the hike accomplished its pur- 
pose — that of showing to the Frosh 
the kind of good time the organiza- 
tion has in all phases of its activity. 

respect Captain Ralph Shay and 
"Hank" Schmalzer were standout stal- 
warts by their scrappy defensive play. 

In the final analysis, Coach Frock 
minions discharged their duties to the 
queen's taste in holding off their vaun- 
ted opponents and actually scaring 
the very daylights out of them, and 
their initial 1941 venture can be 
stamped as a successful effort in all 




Y. W. C. A. To Hold 
Annual Tea 

The Y. W. C. A. 's Big-Little Sister 
tea will be held in North Hall Parlor 
Friday afternoon from 3:30 until 5:00 
o'clock. Margaretta Carey is general 
chairman for the occasion, while Phyl- 
lis Deitzler, music chairman for the 
Y. W. C. A. is in charge of the pro- 
gram. A group of music numbers 
will be presented, including solos by 
Ed Englehart, clarinet; Milton Baker, 
flute; Miriam Carper, piano; and 
Maeredith Houser, cello. 

At the Recognition Service Sunday 
evening at six o'clock the Freshmen 
will be formally accepted as members 
of the Y. W. C. A. and will receive 
their Y pins. Phoebe Geyer, President, 
assisted by the other officers, will be 
in charge of this service. 

Moravian Capitalizes 
On Break 

(Continued from Page 3) 

Rain fell as the second half got 
under way and so both teams played 
conservative football. One Greyhound 
drive was broken up on the Dutchmen 
15 yard line when scrappy John Em- 
inheiser recovered a fumble. The Val- 
ley then began a drive of their own 
with Smith and Maley carrying the 
ball which advanced to the Moravian 
30 yard line. Here a fifteen yard pen- 
alty was called against the Dutchmen 
for unnecessary roughness and their 
scoring opportunity was gone. 

The fourth quarter was all even 
until the big break of the game came. 
With only a few seconds remaining 
George Smith electrified the crowd 
by receiving a fumble and running 
35 yards down the sidelines to score, 
but the score was nulified by the ref- 
eree. Seconds later the game ended 
with the Dutchmen in possession of 
the ball on the Greyhound 20 yard 

For the Valley eleven big Hank 
Schmaltzer and Don Staley stood out 
on the line while Matt Maley was the 
best bet while lugging the leather. 
Looking forward to this Friday's 
game we hear that Nick Dorazio and 
Tony Ventresca will be back in the 
galley lineup which should add the 
scoring punch that has been missing 
so far this season.

sole was continually in fits of hyster-

Schopf was called upon to testify but 
was so exhausted and terrified that 
she was excused from speaking be- 
cause of her physical condition. Mean- 
while the audience could be heard re

observed during the past week, lead-

Some who were in sympathy with 
the killer felt that Beckner had un- 
fairly broken both his friendship with 
his room-mate as well as that between 
Miss Schopf and the offender by delib- 
erately cutting in on him. They felt 
that he had been driven to the deed by 
this plus the sentiment against him 
as shown by attempts of outsiders to 
fight with him, his dismissal as a Y. 
M. C. A. officer, and his expulsion 
from school. These were probably 
those who had signed a petition for 
his reinstatement in college. 

Precisely at the moment when both 
the condemned man and the courtroom 
audience were at the breaking point, 
when a lynching was menacing, a hush 
fell over the room, every eye turned 
toward the doorway, a spector needled 
his way through the crowd, and

Lebanon Valley's class of '45 a first- 
class send-off for four great years in 

We Are Right! 

Despite the turmoil and war hys- 
teria in our world of today, a large 
number of American youth again re- 
turned to the campuses of our col- 
leges and universities this fall. They 
still see fit to study the arts and sci- 
ences which are mainly for a world of 
cultured men and not of brutal war- 

Inasmuch as these students of high- 
er learning are not straining every 
nerve and muscle in an effort to de- 
fend our country immediately by arm- 
ed might, are they to be branded as 
upatriotic? Should they be found in 
steel mills and aircraft factories or 
among the nation's armed forces rath- 
er than in an educational institution 
among books and lectures? The obvi- 
ous answer of your columnist, as a 
student, is "No." Our nation is not 
an out-and-out warrior which has lost 
its respect and desire for the higher 
things of life. The American public 
has not elected to throw everything, 
including its soul, into a spirit of mil- 
itant nationalism. Through this cri- 
sis, which is in substance a threat to 
our way of life, we rather find the 
opposite to be true. America has come 
to hold dearer than ever before its 
fine goverment, its developing arts, 
its resourceful sciences, and its free- 
dom of learning. America has stated 
its decision to take drastic measures, 
if needs be, to preserve just these 
things — things which cannot be pre- 
served if they are not perpetuated by 
some element within the nation. 

Consequently, the student group in 
America is the foremost indication of 
our country's optimism and hopeful- 
ness for the future. They are the 
proclaimers of that hope which shines 
out above the mists of human enslave- 
ment for the interests of mechanized 
murder and the feverish preparation 
which it entails. Their optimism leads 
them to feel that this self-abusive hu- 
manity of ours shall again return to 
the sacred desire to better itself thru 
culture and learning amid a peace 
brought about through reason. As the 
perpetrator of culture, learning, and 
reason the student of today has a 
very definite mission for which he is 
preparing. He, too, has a place in our 
democracy's present program. 

In medieval times everyone became 
a warrior. Each man was obliged to 
build a fortress for a home and pre- 
pare to defend himself and his do- 
mains against the aggression of his 
neighbors. Even the lowly serf was 
obliged to fight many times in the in- 
terests of his master. Through this 
period, the only influence for good 
was the Church. Churchmen were 
about the only men who dwelt in 
peace. The Church of that day was 
also the center of learning, and many 
of her monks did little more than 
write treatises on knowledge or trans- 
lations of old Greek and Roman man- 
uscripts. Then came the Renaissance, 
and men suddenly became eager again 
for culture and learning. With the 
rebirth of this eagerness the service 
of the Church in perpetuating and 
preserving these things suddenly be- 
came evident. The learned monks were 
able to return to humanity the heri- 
tage from former ages which they had 
been disregarding for the past sever- 
al centuries. The youth of our col- 
leges and universities shall be called 
upon to perform a similar function 
after the war clouds have been lifted. 
Men in armed camps and subjected to 
a life of regimentation are prone to 
drift away from the highest things 
which life offers. Men in industry who 
are working almost every day to the 
limit of their energies have little time 
to think of culture and learning. When 
the let up in our defense efforts comes 
these men will find themselves with 
much time on their hands. They will 
again be seeking art and culture.

needed. Rightly, then, those who are 
exerting an effort to become learned 
individuals are to be encouraged and 
admired. They shall be called upon to 
render a tremendous service to their 
fellows in time to come. Ministers, 
doctors, nurses, missionaries, teach- 
ers, research scientists, countless oth- 
ers, all have their futures cut out for 
them. The students' defense program 
is that of defending this planet 
against a loss of all the things that 
really count for a more abundant life. 

ing this method impossible, it's advis 
able to throw the dishes back and 
forth to save time. (But please do 
drink the water before you throw the 
glasses.) (If you're interested in de 
tails for these awe-inspiring systems, 
see the Rover boys. They can also find 
a way out of any other kind of drud- 
gery . . . ) 

There was time out Monday night 
for the Louis-Nova dilly-dally. Eber- 
sole, Gockley, Stansfield, and Charlie 
buried their heads in the radio and 
the others clustered about as near as 
they could — until AMERICA was 
played and everyone stood up. (See 
what a college education does for 
one ? ? ? ? ? ) 

The weekend was inspirational and 
devotional. The Y's really did accom- 
plish a lot, both in joint meetings of 
the two Cabinets and separate com- 
mittee huddles. Well, wasn't Charlie 
proof enough? The rest of the plans 
will prove themselves as time escapes 
(there are some deep, dark secrets 
waiting to pop!) and here's a preview: 

For all Y activities the committee 
heads ONLY will be appointed from 
the Y Cabinets and they will select 
their workers from the whole student 
body — for, whether you know it or 
not, you guys and gals, every one of 
you is a full fledged member of the 
Y. There's going to be a social affair 
once a month sponsored by this plan, 
so watch your chances for advances! 

Vesper services started with a bang 
last Sunday night — the largest turn- 
out we can recollect — was it the 
weather??? Anyhow, Vespers this 
year promise to be varied and inter- 
esting, with some discussion groups 
and a series of talks on art, literature, 
music, and the like, as pertaining to 
religion. Come again!! 

Well, everybody — on land, on sea 
—and at L. V. too, this year it's MOD- 
ERN DESIGN, and with your interest 
this will be the biggest year yet. Keep 
it rolling!!

it's only the password to Y Sessions.

Battista Receives 
Piano Award 
In Brazil 

Joseph Battista, piano instructs 
Lebanon Valley College, returned \w 
week from South America where h 
presented concerts in leading Br a • 
ian cities. In June he won the G^" 
mar Novaes Award given to a v U '°" 
American pianist by Mme. Novaes^ 
distinguished Brazilian pianist, as h & 
contribution toward the cultural ^ 
terchange of the Americas. The awa^i 
also entitled him to an appearance 
soloist with the Rio de Janeiro S &S 
phony Orchestra. 

Joseph Battista has had a brillj a 
career for so young an artist. A n a 
tive of Philadelphia, he attended the 
Philadelphia Conservatory of Mu i 
and the Juilliard Graduate School. He 
made his debut with the Philadelphia 
Orchestra in 1939 and last year made 
his New York debut in Town Hall 
We welcome him back to our campus 
and hope that this award is but a 
stepping stone to further successes. 

I. R. C. Holds First 
Meeting In Philo Hall 

Professor Frederick K. Miller pre- 
sided at the first meeting of the year 
of the International Relations Club 
held in Philo Hall on Monday evening, 
October 6, at seven o'clock. 

Members of the club decided to 
abandon the organization with a sep- 
arate cabinet and club body for only 
a one group organization. Election of 
officers for the current year was post- 
poned until the next meeting which 
will be held on October 24. Professor 
Miller reported that he had received 
advertisements from a film company 
announcing the release of a series of 
reels dealing with the defense of the 
British Isles. Further discussion as 
to the desirability of renting several 
of these films will be taken up at the 
next meeting. In the discussion it was 
advocated that club members should 
invite students who were interested in 
foreign relations and international af- 
fairs to become members of the club 
and attend the next meeting.

Hosts Prepare 
For Dad's Day 

Game and Banquet 
Highlight Day's Program 

Plans for the annual Dad's Day 
which is scheduled for this Saturday 
are fast drawing to completion. Invi- 
tations have been sent to all the fath- 
ers of male students living on campus, 
and it appears from the eager re- 
sponse received thus far that about 
sixty fathers will join their sons in 
celebrating this gala occasion held in 
their honor. 

The Y. M. C. A. has been working 
feverishly to arrange a program which 
will prove a source of enjoyment and 
diversion for the fathers. During the 
morning the dads will have an oppor- 
tunity to get acquainted with each 
other, and also visit the campus 
buildings which will be open for their 
inspection. Each father is welcome to 
accompany his son to the noon meal 
to be served as usual at 12:20 p. m. 

At two o'clock the fathers will be 
the guests of the college when the 
Flying Dutchmen of L. V. C. engage 
the Lions of Albright in their tradi- 
tional grid classic at the Lebanon 
High School Stadium, Seventh and 
Church Streets, Lebanon, Pa. The 
n ew cheer leaders will be there to per- 
form, and three bands will offer their 
share of entertainment at half time. 
After the game father and son will 
%urn to North Hall at six o'clock 
w here they will be given a banquet to 
j> Ul 'Pass all banquets. The repast will 
hay e that certain "Loose" touch, and 
be served by members of the Y.

Year's Calendar 
Stands Revision 

Last week a committee of three, 
namely Miss Gillespie, Dean Stone- 
cipher, and Professor Shenk, met for 
the purpose of revising the college cal- 
endar, necessitated by the postpone- 
ment of the opening of school. 

To make up for this loss of time the 
committee decided to eliminate Mon- 
day after Thanksgiving, usually an 
athletic holiday. Two days will be 
gained at Easter by beginning the va- 
cation on Tuesday, March 31, at five 
o'clock, instead of Saturday noon, 
March 28. The school term will be 
extended one week in June and com- 
mencement exercises will be held on 
Monday, June 15, instead of Monday, 
June 8. 

Mid-semester reports will be due on 
Friday, November 21, instead of No- 
vember 14. Semester examinations 
will be held from January 28 to Feb- 
ruary 6 instead of from January 12 
to January 16. The first semester ends 
Saturday noon, February 7, and the 
second semester begins Monday, Feb- 
ruary 9.

but it is neat looking and wholly prac- 
tical. The following things might be 
cited as its practical aspects: a. It is 
divided into several rooms, some of 
which can be used for games, others 
for study purposes. It was a wise 
move to retain the original partitions 
in order that quiet rooms for study

Philo Clio Clowns 
Cavort for Frosh 
at Joint Session 

The annual entertainment and cele- 
bration fcr Freshmen and new stu- 
dents sponsored by the men's and 
women's societies of the college cam- 
pus, will begin at the first joint ses- 
sion, Saturday evening, October 18, 
8 p.m. in the college gymnasium with 
the Philokosmian and Clionian Lit- 
erary Societies acting as hosts against 
a sawdust background. 

The program committee has, after 
collaboration, selected the general 
theme of this entertainment, which is 
to take place during the intermission 
of the dance, to be "The Circus." 

Included in this great menagerie, 
with a tent-effect background and dec- 
orated ceiling, will be a few side shows, 
typical circus animals, freaks, fat 
women, hoola dancers, clowns, the 
usual barker, and many other appre- 
ciable entertainers. 

Punch will be given to all those at- 
tending this gala event, and peanuts 
can be purchased during the course of 
the show. 

For a swell time, then, it's yours 
at the Philo-Clio joint session.

Plans For Year 

Plans for revitalizing the Green 
Blotter Club were started at the first 
meeting held in Dr. Struble's home last 
Wesdnesday evening. Head Scop Mar- 
tha Davies led a discussion in which 
the members decided to have a planned 
program for each meeting throughout 
the year. A different theme will be 
used every month, with each member 
making a contribution on the particu- 
lar subject. A committee composed of 
Helen Morrison, Marian Kreider, and 
Samuel Gittlen was appointed to carry 
out these plans. 

All former members of the organ- 
ization are invited to attend a tea to 
be held at the home of Dr. Struble on 
Homecoming Day after the football 

Any students desiring to become 
members of the club should hand con- 
tributions- to either Dr. Struble or 
Martha Davies before Friday, Oct. 24. 

L. V. Dutchmen 
"Set Sail" 
For Albright 

Valley Hopes Soar High 
After C. C. N. Y. Victory 

L. V. C.'s rejuvenated Flying 
Dutchmen will attempt to end the 
jinx which the Albright Lions have 
held over them for the last six years 
when the two teams meet on Satur- 
day in the 23rd renewal of the grid- 
iron feud which began back in 1902. 
During this period of time the Blue 
and White have captured 9 contests, 
dropped 11 and ended two in ties. 

On paper, this year's Albright 
Squad must be given the edge due to 
the fact that so far they have dropped 
only one game in four starts, that 
being a 12-0 decision to Carnegie 
Tech. Their victories came at the ex- 
pense of Blue Ridge, Muhlenburg and 
West Chester. Lebanon Valley on the 
other hand have won only one game in 
three starts that being last week's 
30-7 victory over C. C. N. Y. while 
they dropped games to both Bucknell 
and Moravian by close scores. 

Albright will again present a well 
balanced line made up for the most 
patft of veterans from last year's 
squads. In the backfield, Dietz will 
probably depend upon Breen and Kil- 
barny for the heavy work but he has 
many able substitutes. Kilbany it will 
be remembered, was a thorn in the 
side of the Dutchmen last year. 

The Dutchmen on the ether hand 
will display the best line seen at Leb- 
anon Valley for a number of years, 
while in the backfield they have the 
use of three of the fastest small col- 
lege backs in this section of the state. 

Last Friday's game with C. C. N. Y. 
has thoroughly convinced the student 
body at Lebanon Valey that their team 
is ready for Albright. While in past 
years the students hoped for a vic- 
tory, this year one feels an air of su- 
preme confidence, not only in the play-

La Vie Goes to "Life With Father" 


Local playgoers wejTe afforded a 
real treat Monday evening, October 
13, when the touring company of 
Clarence Day's Life With Father, 
featuring Percy Waram and Margalo 
Gillmore, stopped at the Hershey Com- 
munity Theatre for a "one night 

The story of the late Clarence Day's 
own family during the period of the 
1880's in New York City was adapted 
to the stage by Howard Linsay and 
Russel Crouse. These two playwrights 
have done an admirable job in turning 

the whole thing into a spirited, likable 
stage comedy. 

Father (Percy Waram) blusters 
and roars his way through the play, 
attempting to be dignified, authorita- 
tive and commanding to get his own 
way, but only succeeding in becoming 
enmeshed in the complex net of fam- 
ily life. Very impulsive, and given to 
swearing and calling upon his Crea- 
tor, he understands very little of the 
world and nothing at all about his 
wife, Vinnie (Margalo Gillmore), who

"Maybe it would be a good thing to 
have the G-men take a lock at the 
F. and M. campus. And while they're 
at it they could strew a little chloride 
of lime around the premises," con- 
cluded John M. Cummings' "Strictly 
Politics" in the Philadelphia Inquirer. 

Lebanon Valley's gridiron foe made 
the headlines by the radical, com- 
munistic editorial appealing in their 
student publication which protested 
against the deportation of Harry 
Bridges. Whether the editorial was a 
publicity stunt, the honest conviction 
of the editor, or the general sentiment 
of the students can not be said. To 
newspaper men however, it seemed to 
be prompted by the same juvenile spir- 
it which brought about the goldfish 
swallowing craze. 

One thing is evident in the matter. 
F. and M. is either hovering enemies 
of our national government or enemies 
of our patriotic colleges. If it is not 
breeding boys with communistic sen- 
timents it is giving all colleges the 
appearance of putting out adolescent 
nincompoops who arte iar less fit to help 
run our country than those who are 
digging in at manual labor. Lebanon 
Valley protests. Here, at least, we 
are trying to make clear-thinking, 
mature Americans. Maybe our battle 
with F. and M. should extend beyond 
the gridiron. 

Extension . . . 

With the inclusion of the extension 
students' column the La Vie is broad- 
ening its scope as well as acknowleg- 
ing the existence of a hitherto unrec- 
ognized part of Lebanon Valley Col- 
lege. Although the night sessions 
and extension classes have steadily 
been increasing, their members have 
had few affiliations with school ac- 
tivities in addition to their classes. 

Every year members of this group 
are gaining their college diplomas or 
graduate credits. Even though their 
work is on a par with that of the 
campus students their "light is usual- 
ly hidden under a bushel" to us. 

Today, by the appearance of the new 
column on this editorial page, the 
members of these special classes are 
.ing their declaration of depend- 
ence, they are asserting themselves 
is an integral part of the college, and 
they are proving their willingness to 
,::)operate with other groups to form 
a better college. La Vie hopes that 
this action is only the first step to- 
ward reciprocal relations and shared 

Eve-extension Notes 

More than one hundred evening and 
extension school stude.its have regis- 
tered for Lebanon Valley College 
classes in Annville and Harrisburg 
this year, definitely contributing to 
the popularity of adult education. 

Most of the evening and extension 
students — in spirit, if not in years 
— are under thirty. All of them are 
.ooking forward to a better way of 
.ife; they have the youthful American 
characteristics of ambition and vis- 

Virtually all of them are employed, 
and have full-time jobs to handle in 
addition to their school work. Teach- 
ers have the largest representation, 
with one high school superintendent 
among the evening school students 
State employes are next in the occu- 
pational ranks. Quite a number of 
nurses have registered for evening 
classes. Next to the Commonwealth, 
the Bethlehem Steel Company is the 
largest employer of evening school 

Among the other occupations in 
which evening and extension students 
are engaged are: iviacnme operator, 
ousiness machine serviceman, house- 
wife, statistician, dietitian, reception- 
ist, secretary, mspatcner, farmer, 
minister, cierK, soiuier, booKkeeper 
and salesgirl.

portrays the helpless, fluttering Moth- 
er. She hurries about her numerous 
confusing duties, baffling Father with 
her household accounts. Four red- 
headed sons comprise the other mem- 
bers of the Day Family, and to com- 
plete the picture there are a clergy- 
man, unwelcome relatives, and servant 
girls, who only remain long enough 
to be insulted or frightened away by 

It is impossible to attempt a criti- 
cism of the acting. Mr. Waram and 
Miss Gillmore turned in fine per- 
formances, while in the minor char- 
acters Richard Simon as the younger 
Clarence and Ann Lincoln as Mary 
Skinner, his first love, conducted them- 
selves in. a properly spirited manner. 

The late nineteenth century setting 
and colorful costumes were designed 
by Stewart Chaney, and did much 
towards creating the mood of the 
play. For curtain calls the members 
of the cast arranged themselves in 
groups, "similar to the way in which 
the old-fashioned tintypes were posed, 
and thus added the finishing touch to 
the whole production.

From the Wings 

Scoop . . . This is it — the first real 
dramatic scoop of the 1941-42 season! 
The entire cast of the Wig and Buckle 
play "'What Every Woman Knows" 
is boxed elsewhere in this paper. Take 
a look and we think that you'll have 
to admit that it sounds good. Dennis 
Shirk and Betty Minnich are in the 
same play again so we can feel con- 
fident that they'll probably repeat 
their phenomenal success of "The Im- 
portance of Being Earnest." Dave 
Gockley also made a spectacular de- 
but in the same play that established 
him as an actor of real ability. Louise 
Boger is a L. V. actress of long ex- 
perience. You'll remember her as 
"Mug" in Kalo-Delphian in 1940 and 
also from the Junior play of last year. 
Jack Macfadden is less well known. 
Remember? he made his initial ap- 
pearance in the mother's day play 
"Wurtzel Flummery." Charles Shelley 
and Oscar Seylor are both still un- 
known to us so we're looking for- 
ward to their performance in "What 
Every Woman Knows." There is one 
other new name in the cast that you 
should know about. Mary Jane Forry 
played the role of the countesse in the 
Senior class production of this same 
play in the Hershey Jr. College last 
spring. We hear that she did a very 
remarkable job so we're quite anxious 
to see her performance here. Last 
year's W. and B. play was really sig- 
nificant because it introduced so many 
new actors to our campus — perhaps 
this success will be repeated! We'll 
be discussing the cast more in detail 
as soon as rehearsals start. Personal- 
ly, I feel especially enthusiastic about 
this play — it has everything in its 
favor. The combination of actors that 
has been chosen is very unusual and 
the play itself has always been popu- 
lar. Production will start immediately 
but there has been a change in the

date of the performance which will be 
announced later. 

We Promise ... to give you by next 
week, some real facts on the coming 
productions to be presented in Her- 
shey and Harrisburg. The information 
that we have now about dates, actors, 
and the stories of the plays is sort 
of garbled but now we are on the 
mailing list of the dramatic organiza- 
tions in both communities, and soon 
we will have plenty of interesting 
items to fill this column. Two of the 
plays Hershey plans to produce are 
still on Broadway. "Arsenic and Old 
Lace" has already had a nine month 
run, and "The Corn is Green" has 
been on for eleven months. So . . . we'll 
be seeing plays that are still being- 
talked about! 

Speaking of Broadway . . . and 
plays that get talked about! Do you 
informed-drama-enthusiasts realize 
that there hasn't been a major pro- 
duction of an O'Neil play on Broad- 
way since 1934 until "Ah Wilderness" 
was revived by Theatre Guild about 
14 days ago? Eugene O'Neil is still 
considered the first dramatist of Am- 
erica and yet so violently does Broad- 
way steer away from revivals that 
there just haven't been any important 
ones for seven years. But we just 
mention this to tell you that the mas- 
ter playwright is now working on a 
cycle of eight or nine plays that will 
chronicle the experiences of an Am- 
erican family through the years. 
However, producers are waiting im- 
patiently until the whole cycle is com- 
pleted because, unlike the average 
play which is often rushed into pro- 
duction before the script is finished, 
O'Neil will reveal none of his work. 
Brooks Atchinson of the New York 
Times claims that the strain is wear- 
ing on the jumpy nerves of all Broad-

\e OF 

l,V. Freshman Back Runs Wild 
$ Dutchmen Crush C.C.N.Y.30-7 

rpjje potential scoring powers of L 
« C. broke loose as the Flying Dutch- 
men literally crushed the City College 
f tfew York with sparkling attack 
c0! nposed of passes which set the city 
bo y S back on their heels and a mix- 

. e of ground plays which left them 


and bewildered. Save for the 

intermittent sprinkles of rain, Friday 
^glit was a perfect example of foot- 
ba ll weather and the Frockmen took 
advantage of their first privilege of 
playing under such conditions by roll- 
ing up this 30-7 triumph. Several 
thousand thoroughly-chilled spectators 
patched the Valleyites sweep up and 
j0Xi the gridiron almost as swiftly 
aS the cold blasts of wind to register 
four touchdowns over land and one 
via the airways. 

With the game only minutes old, 
"Mat" Maley returned a New Yorker 
punt twenty-six yards to the 14, from 
whence "Tony" Ventresca took over 
an d reeled off seven yards through 
tackle, then two through guard and 
romped around right end to make the 
first touchdown of the evening. 

The visiting kickoff was returned 
twenty-two yards by "Smitty," the 
Lykens speed merchant, proving that 
the Dutchmen's scoring machine was 
still in high gear and set on roaring 
down the field until it hit pay dirt. 
Ventresca crossed up the city boys' 
defense by shooting an aerial to "Bill" 
Racine who was brought down on the 
opposing 41 yard line and following 
this up with a chuck to big "Don" 
Staley who fought his way to the 28. 
After trying a long pass into the end 
zone which fell incomplete, Maley fol- 
lowed his blockers around left end on 
a reverse play and when hit on the 
eleven-yard line, lateralled to Smith 
who chalked up another six points for 
'he Blue and White. 

The Valleyites pushed across a 
third marker before the close of the 
opening chukker by virtue of Ventres- 
ca s perfect execution of a fake re- 
p. The entire C. C. N. Y. aggre- 
gation was thoroughly fooled by this 
j% and followed a decoy around the 
lef t end while "Tony" streaked down 
" le west sidelines, outrunning all 
" oul d-be tacklers. 
The second quarter was scoreless

Press Box Views 

by FI 

The Dutchmen are flying now! That 
spanking they handed out to C. C. N. 
Y. certainly is proof enough that the 
Frockmen have what it takes. The 
fans who witnessed the fray in the 
Chocolate Town Friday nignt saw the 
unveiling of a football player of parts 
and an all around player who seems 
to know what it's all about. For to 
Tony Ventresca goes much of the 
credit for the impressive victory over 
the boys from our big city rivals. He 
personally accounted for three of the 
Valley's scores and tossed the leather 
to Staley for another. 

Matala also did a good job in the 
backfield for the Blue and White, as 
did Smith and Beshore. Maley, Ven- 
tresca's running mate at Pottsvilie 
turned in a notable performance. 

Along the line the "chargers" Shay, 
Schmaltzer, Eminhizer and Hall per- 
formed their chores nobly. Sialey 
again showed his adeptness at snar- 
ing the oval. 

Although the game serves to show 
what the Frockmen really had on the 
ball, it also brought out one or two 
weaknesses which the club might do 
well to remedy in the future. The 
Annvillians failed to make one con 
version of the five attempts. Several 
times it was the fault of the charging 
wall who failed to hold back the op- 
ponents and on another attempt the 
ball never left the ground.- Dorazio 
will be in there booting on Saturday, 
and we hope "there'll be some changes 
made." The Dutchmen also took the 
long end of the stick in penalties. 
They were pushed back 35 yards via 
the penalty route while the city rivals 
lost comparatively few yards through 

Some idea of the manner our eleven 
did outclass their New York opponents 
can be obtained by an inspection of 
the statistics of the nocturnal encoun- 

The Blue and White netted a total 
of 283 yards by rushing, while the 
visitors gained 59, and the Frockmen 
covered 105 yards via the air to 91 by 
the visitors. Lebanon Valley had 14 
first downs to their opponents' 6. The 
Valleyites lost only 9 yards by rush 
ing while the visitors were tossed for 
a total of 32 yards by the home team's 
forward wall. The Frockmen complet- 
ed six of a dozen passes while the vis- 
itors completed nine of 19 aerial ef- 
forts because of the alertness of the 
Blue and White pasy defense and the 
rushing of the passers by the for- 
wards. Maley and Smith share the 
honors of running back the opponents' 
punts for a total of 136 yards to the 
visitors 17. 


Elusive Quarterback 

r b 

George Smith 

. . . who is coming into his own as a 
shifty ball-carrier and play-caller in 
his senior year at Lebanon Valley. 

Our Opponents 

When the 

H- esh ended, L. V. C. was on the 
\ * f Mother marker— two feet 
Pa ydirt. 

At first glance at our opponents' 
scores of the past week-end we find 
that Albright took the measure of 
the West Chester pedagogues by a 
close 6-0 score in a well-played, 
closely-contested game. A pass play 
from Breen to Spangler resulted 
in what was the only score of the 
fray. Moravian continued to march 
toward an unbeaten season by a 32-0 
triumph over little Hartwick in a 
game that was a case of just too 
much power. Griffith and Levy ran 
wild until they were relieved from 
duty by Coach Timm, and then Al 
Neff who scored the winning touch- 
down against the Frockmen took over 
and scored twice. 

Two of our future opponents met 
when P. M. C. gained a 20-0 victory 
over Blue Ridge for the fourth con- 
secutive loss for the latter gridiron 

The athlete who is the subject of 
this week's write-up is perhaps one 
of the gamest of the little men who 
have performed in the past decade or 
more on L. V. C. gridiron teams. Geo. 
Smith turned up at Lebanon Valley 
three years ago fresh from success in 
high school athletics to don the uni- 
form of the Blue and White. Smith 
immediately caught the eye of Coach 
Frock in the early workouts by his 
perseverance and willingness. 

Though failing to earn his letter 
in his initial try at the fall sport, 
Smith played more games and per- 
formed more capably than the aver- 
age freshman football candidate. In 
his sopohomore year the speed mer- 
chant earned his varsity letter with a 
high stepping ball club as he started 
several contests and served as a sub- 
stitute play-caller. "Smitty" played 
below his game last year for some 
reason. While he was not among those 
named as lettermen, George proved 
himself a handy man to have around 
to carry the mail when several of the 
starters were sidelined with injuries. 

The blonde flash showed signs of 
gaining a call at one of the backfield 
posts in pre-season workouts this year 
but was forced to absent himself from 
the field for nearly two weeks whon 
he developed a very bad case of skin 
poisoning. As a result Smith was 
not in unform for the Bucknell tussle. 
Two weeks ago George turned up on 
the field and in a few short workouts 
rounded into shape to grab a first- 
string assignment for the Moravian 
game. Smith was again in the start- 
ing line-up last week against C. C. 
N. Y. and played a game that was 
lauded by coaches and fans alike. 

But the athletic prowess of George 
Smith is not limited to the football 
field. Smith has held down the h! w t- 
corner on the L. V. C. baseball nine 
since his frosh year and has proved a 
capable substitute on the basketball 

club while P. M. C. garnered- their 
first win of the current season. Penn 
State gained the decision over Buck- 
nell at State College. It was just too 
much Pepper Petrilla and a matter cf 
allowing the Lions to convert two 
blocked punts into scores. 

Over in Lancaster F. and M. finally 
opened the season with the smallest 
squad in years by defeating Hampden- 
Sydney 19-6. Though hard pressed 
during the first half, the Diplomats 
opened up in the second half under 
the leadership of Johnny Quick to 
score two touchdowns in quick suc- 
cession and sew up the ball game. 

Sports in Shorts 

by Louise 

In the initial meeting of the Wo- 
men's Athletic Association cabinet, 
plans for the year's program were dis- 
cussed. The policy of the organization 
has been stated as that of having 
every girl on campus participating ac- 
tively in at least one sport. For the 
benefit of new students, we might 
mention the sports offered: archery, 
badminton, basketball, hockey, hiking, 
soft ball, tennis, table tennis, and fen- 

The hockey field has been the scene 
of feverish activity from 3:30 P. M. 
until nightfall, during the last two 
weeks. This season seems to be a 
promising one, as the squad lost only 
one member by graduation. This 
means that Pete Geyer, Carey and 
Stabley, the Thrivo Three are here to 
defend the backfield, while Klopp, Wilt 
and Snell will continue their brilliant 
offensive work. With a group of 
ewcomers that seem to be shaping 
out for serious work, the squad should 
:halk up a few victories for the Blue 
and White. The first game, which is 

scheduled at Shippensburg on October 
25, will serve as a measuring stick 
of the brand of hockey the '41-'42 sea- 
son will witness. 

Marian C. Kreider, treasurer of W. 
A. A. has just announced that candy 
orders have been delivered to the dor- 
mitories, and candy is now on sale in 
Bobby Herr's room in South Hall, Pol- 
ly Keller's in North Hall, and Pete 
Beyer's in West Hall. The proceeds 
f candy sales are used to finance any 
projects that W. A. A. sees fit to 

While hockey seems to occupy the 
center of the autumnal stage, archery 
and tennis are doing a small business. 
For the persons who are interested in 
learning the rudiments of either of 
these sports, a few experienced per- 
-ms will be on hand to give any in- 
structions within the limits of their 
ability. The times when instructors 
ill be available will be posted as 
soon as possible. 


ALTHOUGH it looks something like a sunrise 
over Pike's Peak, this is really a chart showing 
the ebb and flow of Long Distance calls during 
an average day. 

Notice the sharp peaks in mid-morning, mid- 
afternoon and at 7 P. M.? That's when Long 
Distance lines are most crowded these busy days. 
Defense activities have put an extra heavy load 
on telephone facilities. 

If you avoid these three peak periods, you'll 
get faster service on your calls — and you'll be 
helping to "speed the calls that speed defense." 



Chemists to Hear 
Porter at Meeting 

The Chemistry Club will hold its 
first formal meeting of the college 
year in the chemistry lecture room on 
Tuesday evening, October 21, at seven 
o'clock. A program designed to at- 
tract the interest of all science stud- 
ents has been planned. A short sum- 
mary of the latest news in chemistry 
will open the meeting. Then will fol- 
ic -w the two special features of the 
program. The newest member of our 
chemistry and physics department, 
Professor Porter, will speak to the 
group. The second feature will be the 
presentation of a motion picture, "The 
Magic Key." It is the story of the 
extraction of bromine from sea water 
as it is done at Wilmington, N. C. Dr. 
.Bender says, "It is the best picture of 
its kind that L have ever seen." Every- 
one interested is invited to attend 
the meeting. 

The results of the election of offic- 
ers for the Chemistry Club, which 
was held in the chemistry lecture 
room last Thursday at one o'clock, are 
as follows: Russel Horst, president 
LeRoy Yeatts, Jr., vice president; Sid 
Bashore, secretary-treasurer. Th< 
members of the executive committee 
a.i appointed by Mr. Horst are: George 
-.iegler, Eobert Ness, Stephen Metro 
jiin Bamberger, Ruth Havers toe 
and Marian Kreider. 

Biologists Open 
Active Program 

According to its newly-elected pres- 
ident, Earl Reber, the Biology Club 
will be oriue of the most active organ 
izations on the campus this year. Al- 
ready the new officers and tne club's 
advisers, Dr. Derickson and Dr. Light 
have completed arrangements tor 
their first meeting to be held on Tues 
day evening, October 28, in the bi 
ology lecture room. Mr. Robert Troxel, 
a representative of the Department of 
Plant Pathology of the State Depart 
ment of Agriculture, will lecture and 
show colored slides from his own col- 
lection on wild life, particularly wild 
flowers. The meeting itself is being 
held in cooperation with the Garden 
Club of Annville. 

At present, the organization is put- 
ting forth every effort to increase its 
size. "The Biology Club," says Mr. 
Reber, "is looking forward to a big 
year. Membership in it is open to 
anyone who is interested — not merely 
biolojgjy students. We are planning 
trips, sound movies on zoology and 
other biological sciences, and many 
new features for the club this year." 

New officers of the club are: Pres- 
ident, Earl Reber; Vice President, 
Carl Sherk; Secretary, Marjorie Hol- 
ly; Treasurer, John Hampton. 

Invasion Set For Sunday 

Sunday, October 19! That's a date, 
fellows, for you to set aside because 
the powers-that-be have decreed that 
on that day from 2 to 5 P. M. the 
doors of the three girls' dorms will be 
thrown open for your annual visit to 
the inner sanctums. So girls, this is 
just a gentle hint — be prepared for 
the invasion, and fellows, be on hand 
— this is your chance to see how the 
other half lives. 

L, V. Dutchmen "Set 
Sai!" For Albright 

Continued from rage 1 

L. V. C. students will be admitted 
to the Albright-Lebanon Valley 
football game on Saturday, October 
18, 1941, by presenting student ac- 
tivities cards at the 7th and Weid- 
man Street entrance to the Leba- 
non High School Stadium. If pic- 
tures are available in the regis- 
trar's office this week, please at- 
tach the same to the activities 
cards. Game will begin at 2:00 P. 

ers but in the body alsa. 
Frock and Intrieri, starting the sea- 
son with two strikes on them have 
slowly brought the boys up to the level 
seen last Friday evening and so this 
year we feel our boys will be able to 
end that "long winter" which has 
lasted for six years. During those last 
six years the Lions have outscored the 
Dutchmen to the tune of 98-34. 

Albright's best showing to date came 
in the Muhlenberg game which they 
won by the score of 14-3 and thereby 
proved they can come from behind if 
necessary. However against Carnegie 
Tech they stole the show in the first 
half only to blow the game in the 
second half when their net yardage 
gain was only about 20 yards. 

The Deitz-coached team will prob- 
ably depend upon a series of razzle- 
dazzle plays as in former years. They 
have a speedy backfield and an excel- 
lent passing combination in Breen and 
Spangler, who were instrumental in 
last week's win over West Chester. 

In regards to the student body We 
once more implore you to give your 
whole hearted support to the team, and 
judging from the general feeling and 
spirit shown so far this week we are 
ertain you will do so. The Schco] 
Spirit shown last week was only fair, 
;o come on — remember this week wc 
jan only think one thing — BEAT

tional rooms which tend to be used 
for more noisy purposes, b. Too much 
expense has not been put into the 
structure because some time it might 
have to be demolished to provide room 
for a new gymnasium. We are sure 
that any of the men day students will 
be glad to sacrifice this house in the 
interests of getting a new gymnasium 
for our school, c. There is consider- 
able land adjacent to the structure 
which serves excellently as outdoor 
lunching space and which might later 
be utilized for recreational grounds. 

The fact that the house is a modest 
structure does not detract in the least 
from its general neat and inviting ap- 
pearance. The leather and chrome 
furniture in the social room is as fine 
as any which we might find in the 
lobby of a large hotel or the waiting 
room of a transportation terminal. 
The oak chairs in the study rooms are 
also quite the thing. They look as if 
they'll stand propping for comfort. 

Even the old tables brought over from 
our former quarters look as if they 
have recovered much of their original 
respectability in their new surround- 
ings. The new pine flooring is as 
beautiful as any which we have in our 
homes; we hope to keep it that way. 

We men day students have a bad 
reputation as vandals and destroyers 
of property. We thoroughly disliked 
our old, dark and cramped quarters 
in the "Ad" Building, notwithstand- 
ing the fact that our behavior merited 
little better than just such a place. 
The school has shown us that they 
know we can act better if given the 
chance. We shall not disappoint them. 
Our house shall be as neat as it is 
possible for a house in constant use 
to look. We shall try our best not to 
mark the floors, to mar the walls, to 
damage the furniture or the lighting 
fixtures, or to have debris cluttering 
up every inch of floor space. Our pol- 
icy shall be, "If we don't do it at 
home, we won't do it here." 

We again wish to say "thanks" to 
a sympathetic and progressive Board 
of Trustees, and here's to our part in 
all efforts to improve our Alma Mater. 
Sincerely yours, 
Every last man day student.

How's The Rush- 






flew Regime 
Adds Mascot 
To Pep Staff 

In keeping with the present school 
spirit, Robert Dresel announces that 
L V. will have a mascot to be intro- 
duced in chapel on Friday morning. 
The sweater-clad mascot will also at- 
tend the super pep sessions set for 
each Friday night preceding the grid 
tussels during the remainder of the 
1941 campaign. 

Assisting Cheerleader Dresel will 
be the German Band and the new 
squad of cheerleaders. Pep speakers 
will spark the yells. And to climax 
it all, Friday, November 14, will be 
set aside as bonfire night when all 
burnables will be confiscated on the 
Athletic Field to the final honor of 
the 1941 Valley eleven, who on the 
following day take on Juniata in the 
season's nightcap. 

Mr. Dresel has been cheered into 
negotiating this continued program of 
pep sessions by the enthusiastic re- 
sponse that the student body has 
shown. The pa jama parade, snake 
dance, and burning of the effigy of 
Albright at the bonfire on the athletic 
field last Friday evening initiated the 
campaign. Fervent repercussions were 
felt when Lebanon Valley trounced 
Albright on Saturday, and a holiday 
was granted for Monday. 

That the ardor of the student body 
had not cooled was evident when cha- 
pel resounded on Monday morning 
with the cheering and singing in ac- 
cordance with the welcome given the 
members of the football team by the 
faculty and students alike. Following 
this demonstration a huge parade 
headed by the band marched around 
the environs of Annville, celebrating 
the history-making victory over Al- 
ight. The climax of the day's festi- 
vities was the Jam Session held in 
front of North Hall after the noon

The story of Richard Crooks is si- 
milar to that of many other Ameri- 
cans who have struggled, persevered, 
and finally reached triumph and spec- 
tacular success. Born in Trenton, 
New Jersey, his first teacher was his 
mother. He made his first success in 
his home town as a boy soprano where 
he sang during the Sunday services 
and important music festivals, and in 
Ocean Grove where he sang in the 
huge auditorium. Three years later 
he made an appearance with the great 
German contralto, Ernestine Schu- 
mann-Heink who predicted great 
things for him. It was not until his 
middle teens that Richard resolved to 
become a professional singer with op-

Glen Presides 
As Council 
Starts Term 

With President Donald Glen pre- 
siding, the Student-Faculty Council 
held its first meeting of the year on 
Tuesday, October 21. Miss Gillespie, 
Professor Richie, and Dean Stonecipher 
attended in the capacity of faculty 
advisors. During the course of the 
meeting the college calendar for the 
remainder of the entire school term 
was drawn up. Except for two clubs 
which failed to submit dates, all or- 
ganizations on campus have been 
awarded dates for regular monthly 
meetings, and every special event has 
been scheduled. 

The members of the council also un- 
animously decided to take a more ac- 
tive part in campus affairs in com- 
parison with last year. Meetings will 
be held more often, at which time 
needs as well as grievances of any 
group or organization on campus will 
be given an attentive ear. Every or- 
ganization is requested to cooperate 
on this point. 

Another highlight of the meeting 
which evoked much discussion was 
the controversy as to whether the 
date rule for freshman men and wo- 
men should end at Thanksgiving or at 
Christmas. It was decided that the 
council should appoint a committee 
consisting of the heads of all campus 
organizations to present its view- 
points upon the subject to the two 
campus governing bodies, the Men's 
Senate and Women's Student Govern- 
ment Association, in order to obtain 
their respective reactions. It is hoped 
that through this procedure a definite 
time will be fixed when the date rule 
will be lifted. 

The matter of Rec Hours also pro- 
vided a topic for discussion, with the 
subsequent result that a proposal was 
made to recommend to the Men's Sen- 
ate and Men's Day Student Congress 
that Rec Hours begin early next 
month this year instead of at the be- 
ginning of the second semester. It

As Home Coming Day 

Saturday, November 1, has been set 
aside as Homecoming Day at Lebanon 
Valley College. A day of thrills, spills 
and reminiscences is anticipated. 

The day will be ushered in by the 
annual Soph-Frosh tug-o'-war and a 
girls' hockey game. The afternoon 
hours will be monopolized by the 
Blue Ridge - Lebanon Valley football 

The evening program is being ar- 
ranged by the L Club. To help defray 
the expense involved in buying sweat- 
ers for this year's athletes, the L Club 
is sponsoring a dancp in the Annville 
High School Gymnasium. Despite the 
fact that plans are presently incom- 
plete, it has been announced that the 
price of the dance will be one dollar

Dutchmen Take To The Air 
To Overcome Stubborn Foe 

The Flying Dutchmen of Lebanon 
Valley College, smarting under six 
consecutive defeats at the hands of 
their traditional rivals from Albright 
College, brought an abrupt end to that 
domination by a sensational 27-13 vic- 
tory in one of the most thrilling games 
played in this section for a long, long 

The Dutchmen made every break 
count as they played an inspired game, 
recovering fumbles and intercepting 
passes and cashing in on every scor- 
ing opportunity which presented it- 

The game was only minutes old 
when the first break came. An Al- 
bright fumble was recovered on their 
25 yard marker by Big Don Staley. 
From that point, led by their climax 
runner, brilliant Tony Ventresca, the 
Dutchmen marched to their first 
score. Nick Dorazio made four yards 
through the line and then George 
Smith ripped off a first down on the 
Lions 14 yard line. Dorazio and Ven- 
tresca chalked up another first down 
on the visitors 3 yard line. From here 
Ventresca took over and on the sec- 
ond play he swept right end to score 
standing up. Harry Matala then con- 
verted the extra point with the first 
of his place kicks to make the score 
7-0, a lead from which they were nev- 
er headed. 

The Lions were not going to give up 
without a struggle and consequently 
they opened up an offensive of their 
own which resulted in a score. Breen 
started things by returning one of Do- 
razio 's punts from his own 44 to the 
Valley's 37 yard marker by a neat bit 
of open field running. The Lions then 
unleashed their only successful aerial 
attack of the day as Bennett passed 
to Breen for a first down on the Val- 
ley 21 yard stripe. "One man gang" 
Bennett then ripped off tackle to the 
Blue and White 15 yard line. Friend 
Bennett then dropped back to the 
Valley 25 and shot a pass to Bertino 
for the Lions first score. Bertino's 
attempted placement was wide of the 
uprights and the Valley led at the 
end of the quarter, 7-6. 

In the second quarter the Frock- 
men, with Dorazio and Ventresca 
throwing and almost anyone receiving, 
unleashed the most devastating aerial 
attack since the days of the Kuhn to 
Walk combination. 

Dorazio first tossed to Maley for a 
Valley first down at mid-field. Maley 
and Ventresca then moved the oval to 
the 31 from which point Ventresca 
tossed to Staley for another first 
down on the Red and White's seven- 
teen yard line. At this point Breen 
momentarily stemmed the Blue and 
White onslaught by intercepting a 
Valley pass on his own five yard line. 
Bennett promptly got off a beautiful 
kick which sailed to the Dutchmen's 
45 yard line. However, Frock's inspir- 
ed minions were not to be denied. Two 
successive passes, Dorazio to Matala, 
put the ball on the Lions 8 yard mark- 
er from which point Matt Maley, on a 
fake reverse tossed to Kubisen in the

Dedication . . . 

La Vie Collegienne dedicates this 
issue of the paper to the Flying 
Dutchmen. We do so not because we 
are so pleased with the Albright vic- 
tory but because they are the one 
group who viewed that achievement 
with cool-heads and eyes to the future. 
While the rest of the campus went 
wild, those boys were the ones to re- 
mind us that this was an encouraging 
starting point for Lebanon Valley's 
new leaf but that the battles to come 
will be the true test. 

We applaud them because they are 
not topheavy with confidence and be- 
cause they are not foolish enough to 
use all their breath on the first lap. 
We make our dedication to a team 
that intends to make a future for it- 
self and not rest on past laurels! 


To the editor: 

The New Regime has inspired the 
musically-minded of Lebanon Valley 
to form a dance band — a campus 
dance band. You probably witnessed 
or at least heard about their debut 
Monday afternoon, when the student 
body, incited by the victory over Al- 
1 right and the football holiday, took 
to dancing in front of North Hall. 
Lveryone who heard the new band get 
i nder way was thrilled at the prospect 
cf making the campus dance band a 
permanent feature at Lebanon Val- 
ley. Why not? 

However, the members have met 
with an obstacle which threatens to 
make this an impossibility — the dance 
band needs a practice room. For their 
first practices they used the College 
Band Room in the Conservatory, but 
now that isn't available — no place 
appears to be available. To have a suc- 
cessful band means plenty of plain, 
unadulterated practice, and the mem- 
bers are only too willing to give their 
time, but a practice room is essential. 

The members are well-known to all 
of us. Saxes, Dick Albert, Ed Stans- 
fleld, Charles Frantz; Trumpet, Don 
Smyser, Al Smith, Bob Sheaffer; 
Trombones, Carl Derr, John Cham- 
bers; Piano, Ned Miller; Bass, Paul 
Fisher; Drums, Bob Good. 

Are we, the student body, willing 
to have our dance band fold-up simply 
because there isn't a place where they 
can practice their arrangements and 
produce a quality of music symbolic 
of the New Regime? It's our band. 
Let's show them how much we ap- 
preciate it by finding them a practice

Eve-extension Notes 

Evening class students seem to en- 
joy their involuntary participation in 
pre-fcotball pep meetings Friday 
nights, athcugh it's tough on the prof- 
essors as they compete with outside 
attractions. Doors and windows may 
be closed, but L. V. C. enthusiasm 
seeps through as a prelude to victory 
on the morrow. 

Eve-extensicn classes lost a student 
recently when Jacob Perry of Harris- 
burg accepted a position with the 
Federal government on a defense pro- 
ject in Ohio. . . . Another G-employee, 
a new student, is Mr. Stone, who is 
attending classes in Harrisburg. 

For the second time evening stu- 
dents at Annville have the opportunity 
this year to register for "History and 
Appreciation of Music," given at the 
Conservatory by Mary E. Gillespie. 
This subject seldom is given for even- 
ing students. . . . Incidentally, faculty 
concerts are scheduled at the Conser- 
vatory of Music frequently, and offer 
outstanding musical entertainment. 
These concerts are open to evening 
and extension students. 

One of the extension classes in Har- 
risburg has quite a few well-known 
extension students enrolled — it looks 
like a good class. . . . Last year a stu- 
dent registered for an extension class 
solely on this basis. He liked the looks 
of the other students. The class was a 
great success, socially at least. 

Joe Zinicola, exact weight not avail- 
able, is having trouble with the junior- 
size class room furniture wished on 
the statistics class at the Central 
School Building in Harrisburg. 

By general agreement it seems that 
Harry Sanders is the "safest driver" 
on the Harrisburg-Annville route, es- 
pecially on foggy nights or when 
there's ice on the road. Ask him his 
occupation and you'll know why. 

On Chapel Notices 


We must have larger attendances at 
our extra curricular functions or all 
interest in them will eventually be 
"blctte"! Most of us have no doubt 
noticed the gradually decreasing at- 
tendances at class meetings, society 
meetings; and various other social 
gatherings, and the apparent lack of 
interest. There must be some reason 
for this decline in attendance and we 
believe it is due to insufficient notifi- 
cations of these meetings. The idea 
seems to be to post notices on the bul- 
letin boards and then to trust that 
a sufficient number of students will 
read them to spread the news around. 

When this writer first came to 
LVC, these notices were read at the 
one place everybody or nearly every- 
body gathers at one particular time of 
day — chapel. Then when we held so- 
ciety meetings and so forth, there were 
really enough members present to car- 
ry on business properly. Why can we 
not have these notices read by the 
Chapel leader once again? Does the 
faculty actually think that this few 
seconds of notice reading would de- 
tract so much from the reverent spirit 
of the devotional exercises? If we had 
a daily campus newspaper such as 
much larger colleges can afford, there 
would be no need or desire for these 
chapel notices. A weekly edition 
like "La Vie" is certainly not timely 
enough to serve the purpose, so why 
not do as is suggested? The students 
of LVC would like to know what the 
score is concerning their class and 
society functions, and they must be 
present at the meetings to find out. 
We are asking the faculty to relax a 
bit and give us a break so that our 
extra curricular activities may get 
a much needed shot in the arm.

Disc Data 

Georges Enesco, one of the world' 

greatest contemporary composers, was 

born at Cordeoremi, Roumania ~ 


August 7, 1881. When but seven y ear 
of age he was admitted to Hellrnes 
berger's violin class at the Vienna 
Conservatory, and in 1894 he began a 
course of study at the Paris Conserva 
tory. While in Paris, Enesco w as 
awarded the violin prize by the Con 
servatory which resulted in his ap 
pointment as court violinist to the 
Queen of Roumania. He steadily g a , n 
ed recognition with his compositions 
which included in their scope a wide 
variety of musical forms from tone 
poems through rhapsodies, symphon- 
ies, and chamber music. Magnificent 
in the field of the rhapsody is Enes- 
co's first Roumanian Rhapsody which 
had its initial performance in Lon- 
don in the year 1911 where it met 
with capital success. The following 
year it was introduced into the United 
States by the Boston Symphony; it 
was this orchestra which Enesco con- 
ducted in the Roumanian Rhapsody 
while on his last tour of the United 
States in 1938. Here, too, the work 
met with wide acclaim from the music 
critics. Moses Smith said in the Bos- 
ton Transcript : "The playing of Enes- 
co's first Roumanian Rhaptody had 
wildness without roughness, gypsy 
abandon without cheapness, fire, so 
to say, without smoke. — " No words 
could describe this composition more 
fully or with more appropriateness, 
for it truly gives one the impression 
of the Gypsy spirit of romance. Par- 
ticularly striking is the passage near 
the beginning cf the second side of the 
first record which reminds one of a 
toiling agricultural nation. It is an 
exemplification of Roumania by a true 
Roumanian. That is to say, Enesco 
captures in this one composition the 
mobile life of the Gypsy, and the 
stationary existence of the peasant. 

This work is available in recorded 
form on Victor records by Eugene Or- 
mandy and the Minneapolis Sym- 
phony Orchestra; but the Columbia al- 
bum X203 is the superior recording. 
Frederick Stock and the Chicago Sym- 
phony give this composition an un- 
forgettable treatment with superla- 
tive orchestral ability. In addition, 
the recording is outstanding in qual- 
ity of tone leaving nothing to be 

On the fourth side of the album is 
the Donna Diana Overture by the 
composer, Reznicek, who is now one o 
Germany's outstanding musicians. 
Reznicek brings forth in this wor 
an example of typical Slavic tempe -

^hen the Flying Dutchmen defeated the Albright Lions last Saturday 


n0 on, they not only balanced the ledger of wins and losses for the cur 
l gea son at two all, but brought to the campus of the Blue and White a 
^"oiy wm " cn nas " 3een awaite d f° r seven years by students, faculty, alumni, 
vict0l rS and coaches of Lebanon Valley College. The contest with Albright 
n y e ' ar ^ as k een ni01e tnan anotner Da ^ S ame on the schedule. It's been 
e3C one game that players and coaches of L. V. C. have always wanted to 
> more than any other. The victory on Saturday was the one that this 
• t r has been waiting to place in the record book for four long years. At 
*f j aS t the Frockmen have come out on top in the annual contest with the 
l °\ng foemen. 

^ 3 But what is more, the players have themselves found what it really means

and rare and tear and trample a worthy opponent by dint of deter - 
na tion and aggressive play. From start to finish the Valley gridmen 

to "P. 

^ in the ball game hammer and tongs. There were only two brief mo- 

^ts in the first and third periods when the visitors were able to pene- 

^ j eep into the L. V. C. end of the field and then only by overcoming for 

' time the stubborn resistance of the forward wall of the Dutchmen. From 

3 nn the Dietz-men found themselves in their own half of the field when- 
jden 011 

e r they gained possession of the pigskin. 

The Valleyites really proved themselves "Iron Men," for Wasileski, 
. hma ltzer, Latz, and Matala played without relief and Staley, Smith, Shay 
n d Maley were on the sidelines for only a few seconds. Only four sub- 
stitutes were used by Coach Frock throughout the cleanly played contest, 
f e might add that this is the first meeting with Albright in the past several 
•ears in which fists were not seen flying during the fray. 
' We cannot restrain from commenting on several interesting episodes oc- 
curring during the afternoon. After Ben Wasileski had muffed an oppor- 
tunity to intercept a visitor's pass on the next play "Blind Man" Matala 
neatly snared the oval from the air and galloped over 50 yards into pay dirt 
j us t before the first half ended. On the same play Johnny Hall jostled two 
raen from Matala's path to assist on the play. Rather than cut down either 
{ the would-be tacklers and go to the ground himself, in the operation, Hall 
remained on his feet and stood in the way of the two opposing gridders. 
That's really playing heads-up ball. 

"Punchy" Eminhizer picked up an Albright fumble late in the contest 
and was well on his way to the goal line on a swivel-hip jaunt when the 
sole remaining Lion brought him down near the mid-stripe. The play was re- 
called to the point of the fumble by the offensive outfit. Both Matala and 
George Smith stood out on two occasions when these Valley backs cut 
down field and went high in the air to snatch the ball from the hands of 
defensive secondaries and raise the Dutchmen passing percentage. "Steve" 
Kubisen pulled the ball from the ozone in the second quarter and wiggled his 
way into pay dirt only to suffer a leg injury which caused him to give way 
to a substitute with reluctance. 

But credit for this glorious victory belongs to Coaches Frock and Intrieri 
as well as the 15 players who performed so valiantly on the gridiron. These 
two fine coaches who compose the Lebanon Valley board of strategy were 
seen by this columnist last week on his several strolls to the athletic field 
drilling their charges at length under the lights atop the press box in an 
effort to properly prepare them for the battle. Their labors were not in 
vain as evinced by the results, after the week of painstaking and intensive 
offensive and defensive drill. 

And now we prepare to beg a ride to Chester to see the gridiron repre- 
sentatives of Lebanon Valley endeavor to gain a win over the P. M. C. 
Cadets to atone for the 19-16 defeat suffered last year by reason of the 
questionable actions of the men in the striped shirts.

With the half rapidly drawing to a

pei 'ately to score. Several short pass-

scored on a pass to Dutzer. Bertino 
kicked the extra point to bring the 
score to the final figures, 27-13. 

In the final quarter the Dutchmen 
played conservative football to pro- 
tect their lead while the Lions threw 
discretion to the winds and gambled 
on lateral passes, many of which back- 
fired. Eminhizer broke up one threat 
by recovering a fumble and Staley al- 
so recovered another by the now jit- 
tery Lions. The game ended with 
Valley in possession of the ball on 
their own 40 yard line. 

Statistics of the game show that 
Ventresca, Smith and Co. rolled up 
134 yards from scrimmage to 61 for 
the Lions although they were outscor- 
ed in first downs 12-10. This differ- 
ence was due mainly to the stout de- 
fense shown by the Dutchmen line 
which repeatedly threw the Albright 
backs for losses. 

To single out any one player as the 
hero of the fray would be impossible 
and unfair. From end to end the line 
was magnificent. Schmaltzer was to 
be found at the bottom of almost every 
opposing line play, while Latz, Emin- 
heizer, Wasileski and Capt. Shay also 
got in more than their share of 
tackles. The ends, Racine, Staley and 
Xubisen repeatedly rushed the Lion 
lasses and covered Dorazio's bouncing 
Hints with amazing efficiency. In the 
backfield Matala played the best game 
of his career as a member of the Fly- 
ing Dutchmen. He was all over the 
ield, covering passes, making tackles, 
blocking for his mates and occasion- 
ally carrying the ball himself. Smith 
played a sensational defensive game, 
Continued on Page 4, Col. 5 

This week we have chosen to sing 
praises to a worthy son of L. V. C. 
Steve Kubisen has truly represent- 
ed the spirit of determination and dog- 
ged stick-to-itiveness in his four years 
as a performer on Blue and White 

Kubisen was overshadowed in his 
first three years by more experienced 
and older gridmen at the wing posts 
but has come into his own this season 
as a starter on the left end of the Val- 
ley line. Steve got started on the right 
foot in his first year on the Dutchman 
football squad and saw action in sev- 
eral contests. In his sophomore and 
junior years he found himself assum- 
ing a reservist's role at either end 
spot when the occasion arose. When 
called upon, the wiry wingman render- 
ed good account of himself. 

It was Kubisen who grabbed a toss 
from the L. V. C. passer in the second 
quarter in the Albright contest last 
week and fought his way into touch- 
down land. In the three years prior to 
this season the hard-working pass re- 
ceiver never had the opportunity to 
see action in the annual Albright fuss- 
es. But in his one chance to perform 
against the Valley's ancient rival, 
Kubisen proved again that he is there 
when the pressure is on. 

Kubisen takes the ball game seri- 
ously and never lets down for a sec- 
ond. From the time that he takes the 
field until the final whistle, Steve is all 
alive to the game and is an alert 
watcher for opponents' miscues. 

Our agile end is one of those players 
whom we applaud for his indifference 
to injuries. In the Albright contest 
he received a nasty bump on the knee 
when he battered his way to a score 
and protested against his removal for 
a sub. However, he submitted when he 
realized that he would be helping his 
team more by allowing a replacement 
to take over his chores. Whenever we 
see this type of spirit, we can only 
commend the athlete as a true ball 
player and one who is willing to sac- 
rifice himself for his team's cause. 

Besides his outstanding performance 
on the gridron, Steve Kubisen has 
proved a dependable and aggressive 
pivot man on Dutchmen court teams 
in the past two years, and will again 
take over that job when the basketball 
season opens. Kubisen has always ap- 
plied himself whole-heartedly to his 
studies and will be among the athletes 
holding high scholastic ratings when 
the sheepskins are distributed next 

Valley To Meet 

P. M. C. Cadets 
Saturday in Chester 

Saturday afternoon the Flying 
Dutchmen will invade the premises of 
Pennsylvania Military College at 
Chester. The Cadets will be seeking 
their second victory of the 1941 cam- 
paign as they have fallen under the 
barrages of New York University, 
Delaware and West Chester. The lone 
victory was a 20-0 triumph over Blue 
Ridge, the opponent travelling to 
Annville on Homecoming Day. 

In the series to date L. V. C. has 
won five contests, dropped two and 
tied one. The best played games of 
the series took place during the last 
five years. In 1936 the Cadets ran 
back the opening kickeff for a six- 
pointer but failed to convert the extra 
point. The Blue and White scored on 
the last play of the game and added 
£he point to win 7-6. Tony Rozman 
kicked a field goal to bring victory to 
the Valley in the next year's game, 

In '38 Rozman kicked a field goal 
and Brown scored on a pass from 
Kress early in the game. The same 
combination worked again later in the 
game to give L. V. a 15-13 win. Two 
years ago Walk, Kuhn, and Ciamillo 
each scored once and Schillo twice in 
running up a 31-0 triumph. 

The 1940 classic on Homecoming 
will never be forgotten because of the 
disputed touchdown in the waning 
minutes, which won the game for the 
Red and Gold. A cadet end snagged 
a pass. When he apparently stepped 
out of bounds, a whistle was blown, 
giving everyone the opinion that the 
play was over. He raced into the end 
zone unmolested. After an argument 
the score was allowed, giving P. M. C. 
a 19-16 victory. 

It is this fact that will turn the 
P. M. C. - L. V. C. gridiron meeting 
of 1941 into a battle marked with clev- 
er football tactics and team play. 

Our Opponents 

m -■ 

While Lebanon Valley was running 
rough shod over the Albright Lions, 
our opponents were also enjoying a 
busy day on foreign soils. Bucknell 
pulled a mild upset when the Bisons 
trampled Boston University 6-0 in a 
hard fought battle at Lewisberg. The 
P. M. C. cadets were on the short end 
of a 13-0 score on last Friday when 
the potential pedagogues from West 
Chester had a field day at the expense 
of Si Pauxtis' gridders. 

On the same evening the hitherto 
undefeated Moravian Greyhounds 
were snowed under at Bethlehem un- 
der the arc lights as the Diplomats 
gained their second win of the year in 
as many starts. Juniata belatedly 
opened its 1941 season by gaining a 
15-14 decision over Susquehanna Uni- 
versity in a Homecoming contest a- 
long the river. C. C. N. Y. again suf- 
fered a shellaking at the hands of 
Clarkson when the latter aggregation 
won hands down over Benny Fried- 
man's boys 20-0. The last of our fu- 
ture opponents, Blue Ridge College 
was trampled by Hofstra 20-7 in tak- 
ing it on the chin for the fifth straight 
time last week. 

'The card for this week is as follows : 
Bucknell vs. Temple at Philadelphia 
Moravian vs. Albright at Reading 
C. C. N. Y. vs. Susquehanna at Selins- 

F. & M. vs. Gettysburg at Lancaster 
Juniata vs. Washington College at

was also suggested that the freshman 
date rule be lifted for these occasions. 

Thus, with an appropriate show of 
enthusiasm the Student-Faculty Coun- 
cil has initiated its meetings, reveal- 
ing its intention to lend the guiding 
spirit so necessary for the success of 
all campus activity. 


whose efforts were rewarded with a 27-13 victory over Albright, 
Lebanon Valley's traditional foe last Saturday afternoon before 5000 rain 
soaked fans in Lebanon. 



Girl Athletes 
Open Season At 

On Saturday, October 25, the girls 
will play the hockey season's opener 
at Shippensburg. The game will be 
played in the morning at 10 o'clock, 
so that team members will be enabled 
to observe later activities of Shippens- 
burg's Homecoming. 

The hockey squad, numbering sixty, 
is the largest that has turned out 
since Miss Henderson's regime on 
Lebanon Valley campus. Of the sixty 
girls participating in the sport, about 
fifty per cent, or twenty-eight of them 
are Frosh. It seems that the first year 
women are really out for the scalps 
of the upperclass gals who insist up- 
on observation of class standing, even 
to prohibiting Freshmen from sitting 
on the comfortable chairs. (See W. D. 
S. R.) On the hockey field is the one 
place where class standing doesn't 
mean a thing — you've got to produce 
the stuff, or you just don't rate. That's 
what we mean by the honor team sys- 

Perusing, the annals of Shippens- 
burg - Lebanon Valley hockey rivalry, 
it seems that the former has triumph- 
pd more frequently, as far as score is 
concerned. However, since the aim of 
Coaches Henderson and Robb is not 
to run up scores, but to promote good 
sportsmanship and healthy fun among 
their proteges, it is difficult to meas- 
ure which school has attained the 
greater success. 

Mary Ellen Klopp, hockey leader, 
deserves a word of congratulation on 
the work she has done thus far this 
year. Her job is a responsible one 
requiring willingness to work as well 
as a keen spirit of cooperation. Klopp 
has proved a menace to opposing 
teams, and is now proving herself 
just as great a benefit to her own team 

Since Saturday will be the girls' 
fi>st opportunity to see how they'll 
measure with other schools this year, 
let's see a carry-over of this wave of 
nchool spirit, and join in wishing them 
the success for which they are striv

Sold exclusively by 




Enrico Caruso, and sometimes Rich- 
ard would stand four hours to pay a 
precious dollar for admission to hear 
Caruso sing 1 . Times were not always 
easy for him and often he worked long 
hours for meager sums to continue his 
musical career. During the first World 
War, although under age, he enlisted 
in the 626th Aero Squadron, and af- 
ter the war came back to New York 
as tenor soloist in the All Angel's 
Church. Later he was the forty-sev- 
enth candidate to sing an audition for 
a job as a soloist in the Fifth Avenue 
Presbyterian Church — and won. It 
was his first real break. 

Now many doors swung ajar: some 
of them actually opened. Dr. Dam- 
rosch, then conductor of the Sym- 
phony Society of New York, engaged 
him for nine concerts. Soon he was 
singing all over the country and re- 
cital and radio engagements swelled 
the total of performances. As soon 
as it was possible, he went to Europe 
where he was welcomed with flatter- 
ing success. He remained there and 

prepared for opera. He made his de- 
but as Cavaradossi in "La Tosca" at 
the Hamburg Opera, then sang the 
same role at the State Opera in Ber- 
lin. Concert tours followed, then back 
to America where he made his debut 
in Philadelphia on Thanksgiving 
night, 1930, again as Cavaradossi. 
The great night came, on February 
25, 1933, when he stepped upon the 
fabulous stage of the Metropolitan, in 
a costume that his idol, Caruso, had 
owned to sing "Des Grieux" in Mas- 
sanet's "Manon." The unprecedented 
number of 37 curtain calls attested 
the response of his hearers to the ten- 
or's art. 

Today he is really "the great Amer- 
ican tenor" and in the past year has 
been adjudged "the most popular male 
singer of the classical songs on the 
air." He has made two of the most 
successful concert tours of Australia 
and climaxed his last tour with a jour- 
ney to South Africa. 

This year, Mr. Crooks is singing in 
English. "It is too bad that politics 
and hatred have come into the musical 
scene," he explains, "but they do. Af- 
ter all, we are American, our lan- 
guage is English, and that is the lan- 
guage of our audiences."

Housing Problems 
Noted in Chapel Speech 

Reverend Vinton Edward Zeigler, 
formerly paster of the Warren Street 
Church in the underprivileged Red 
Hook-Gowanus area of Brooklyn and 
noW a Methodist minister in Rye, New 
York, addressed the student body of 
Lebanon Valley College in an extend- 
ed chapel period Tuesday, October 28, 
on the subject "Housing, A First Line 
f Defense." 

Mr. Zeigler asserted that battles 
are not won by armies, navies, and 
bullets, but by the home defense. The 
welfare of a country is not safeguard- 
ed by manpower and armed force but 
by mentally, physically, and morally 
healthy citizenry. 

He further stated that housing alone 
is not a panacea for the ills of the 
slum section. The inhabitants of these 
underprivileged areas must be re- 
habilitated physically and morally. 
The clearance of the slums is like- 
wise not the lone cure-all for national 
ills. Yet slum rehabilitation and hous- 
ing projects are necessary. "Housing 
is the First Line of Defense." 

Having served both extremes of 
the American peoples, Mr. Zeigler 
was able to present dramatic contrasts 
between two strata of the American 
way of life. The pictures of a crowd 
of dirty, boisterous youngsters fol- 
lowing after Mr. Zeigler begging for 
"just one" of the flowers in Mr. Zeig- 
ler's hand and the huge greenhouse 
supplying some Long Island estate 
holder with a daily superficial abund- 
ance cf unappreciated flowers were 
n -ost heart rending.

I.R.C. Reorganizes 
Under Leadership 
of New Officers 

At its regularly-scheduled meeting 
cn Monday evening, October 27, in 
Philc Hall, the International Rela- 
tions Club reorganized and elected the 
following officers in a close contest: 
President, Elizabeth Sattazahn; Vice 
President, Samuel Beamesderfer ; and 
Secretary, Franklin Patschke. 

Professor Frederick K. Miller, I. 
R. C. Advisor, opened the meeting by 
distributing for hurried review the 
new books received for I. R. C. use by 
special arrangements with Carnegie 
Institute. These books include: Can-

basement of the Library. Bi-weekly 
and fortnightly reviews of Foreign 
Policy and international news are also 
to be placed at the disposal of the

place of meeting is Philo Hall. 

German Clubbers 
Plan Excursion 

At the first meeting of the German 
Club, Wednesday, October 15, exten- 
sive plans were drawn up for the 
year. In addition to the regular meet- 
ings, which will be held the second 
Wednesday of each month, two spec- 
ial occasions were planned. The first 
consists of a trip to Ephrata to visit 
the famous "Cloisters," and also to 
Landis Valley to inspect the new 
buildings of the Landis Valley 
Museum. The second occasion will be 
a "German Night" to be held on the 
college campus. All students will 
be invited to make the trip with the 
German Clubl. There will be cars 
available to solve the transportation 
problem. The group will leave at 9:00 
in the morning and return sometime 
in the afternoon.

During the intermission last night 
while a standing-room-only audience 
filled the lobby of the Lebanon High 
School Auditorium with cigarette 
smoke and lively chatter, LA VIE 
COLLEGIENNE was interviewing 
Richard Crooks. . . . Thanks to Mr. 
Longacre, President of the Lebanon 
Community Concert Association. 

Mr. Crooks is an interesting con- 
versationalist, a gentleman of the 
highest order, and above all a trm 
artist. Being blessed with a magni- 
ficent voice, he has learned to use it 
with skill and ease. His tone control 
is superb. His diction flawless. His 
poise incomparable. Richard Crooks 
has attained complete mastery of his 

The art of arranging programs is 
likewise not an alien one with Mr. 
Crooks. With his rendition of "Le 
Reve" from "Manon," he revealed to 
the audience the reason for the thir- 
ty-seven curtain calls in his Metro- 
politan Opera debut in 1933. Four- 
drain's "Chevauchee cosaque" served 
as a vehicle of display for another 
phase of his voice. Without losing any 
of his stage dignity or tone quality, 
Crooks brought a whole band of cos- 
sacks into the concert hall. His final 
encore, "Songs My Mother Taught 
Me," brought his concert to a beauti- 
ful close. 

Were he advising any music stu- 
dents of today, Mr. Crooks would 
stress the following: memorization — 
when one has memorized his music, he 
can make it more pleasing to the au- 
dience; listening to other artists — 
don't take one artist's interpretation 
for granted. America offers plenty of 
opportunity to develop the listening 
habit; and availing oneself of oppor- 
tunities to sing in recitals, concerts, 
or choral groups — the experience of 
choral work is particularly helpful to

L Club Climaxes 
Homecoming Plans 
With Annual Dance 

Ralph Mease, president of the L 
Club, announces a benefit dance as a 
climax to the annual Homecoming 
Day activities Saturday, November 1, 
at 8:30 p.m. in the Annville High 
School Gymnasium for the sum of 
one dollar "stag or drag." Music will 
be furnished by the Colonial Club 
Orchestra of Harrisburg. 

All proceeds will be deposited in the 
L Club sweater fund. It is through 
this fund that Lebanon Valley's sons 
of the gridiron, court, and diamond 
are honored. Blue and White sweaters 
are furnished annually to varsity 
athletes seeing a specified amount of 
service in their Alma Mater's livery. 

An informal affair, the L. Club 
dance is open to students, alumnae, 
and friends of both. All who follow 
the Blue and White are invited to 
openly express their gratitude for 
the service and sacrifice of L. V. C.'s 

The floor will be open from 8:30 to 
11:45. The Apostles of Terpsichore 
will be at their best. In short, Presi- 
dent Mease ascertains a pleasurable 
evening for all who attend the L Club 

Chemists Convert 
Black Hole into Lab 

The "Black Hole of Calcutta," the 
room in the basement of the Admin- 
istration Building previously used by 
the men day students, has been appro- 
priated by the Chemistry Department. 
While the room has not as yet been 
renovated, Dr. Bender expects to have 
it ready for use within two or three 
weeks. This year it will be used as 
a laboratory for mineralogy, metal- 
lurgy, and metallography. The metal- 
lography work will be the first of its 
kind on this campus, consisting of 
polishing, etching, and microscopic 
work to study the micro-structure of 
metals and alloys. New tools, micro- 
scopes, and etching instruments have 
been ordered for use in this work.

For Invasion 

Football Tug, Dance 
Comprise Full Schedule 

Several hundred alumni will return 
to the campus of Lebanon Valley Col- 
lege, Saturday, November 1, in obser- 
vance of the annual Homecoming Day. 
A full and varied schedule including 
sports and fellowships has been ar- 
ranged for the invading crowd of for- 
mer students. 

Alumni have been requested to reg- 
ister at Engle Hall upon arrival. At 
the same time tickets for the football 
game may be purchased. In this way 
the registrar will know the number 
present to reserve a section at the 

The first event of the day will be 
the traditional tug-of-war held on the 
banks, over, and in the water of the 
Quittapahilla Creek. At 9:00 o'clock 
the tried and true sophomore boys, 
who last year were the vanquished, 
will pit their strength against the as 
yet unfathomed depths: of freshman 
endurance to try to redeem last year's 

Miss Henderson's pride, the girls' 
hockey team, will play their first 
home game at 10:15 on the Girls' Ath- 
letic Field. Under the leadership of 
Mary Ellen Klopp, these girls will 
meet the Albright College team. Still 
highly spirited by their holding Ship- 
pensburg whom they have never de- 
feated to a 0-0 score, they are ready 
for the fray. 

As the afternoon's attraction the 
football game with Blue Ridge College 
will be played at 2:00. The football 
team has made a fine record for itself 
this year. With the school behind them

Literary Club Adds 
Spots to Blotter 

At a special meeting of the Green 
Blotter Club Friday, October 24, new 
Ink Spots, Genevieve Stansfield, jun- 
ior, and Marjorie Frantz, freshman, 
were elected to fill two of the Club's 
five existing vacancies. The election 
of Genevieve Stansfield completes the 
junior membership quota of four while 
the election of Marjorie Frantz is 
but one fourth of the freshman allot- 

Two other freshman aspirants to 
membership were considered as poten- 
tialities. However, before voting ac- 
ceptance the veteran Ink Spots re- 
quested more up-to-date manuscripts 
from this couple. In the event that 
their manuscripts are accepted, these 
two freshmen will be admitted to the 
club. The fourth freshman Ink Spot 
will be elected some time in the fu- 
ture when another tryout will be 

The regular monthly meeting of the 
Green Blotter Club will be held Wed-

study of the short story will be made,

member will be asked to express in 
prose or poetry his spontaneous re- 
action to a picture provided by Head 
Scop Martha Davies.

Recreation hours so "Jack" will not 
be a dull bey are going to brighten 
his days sooner than usual this year. 
Come November and the Day Stu- 
dent's Congress and Men's Senate 
dancing hours in the gym will be in- 
itiated three months earlier than 
usual. Those Freshmen who are 
grumbling can breathe easier for the 
governing bodies have gone sympathe- 
tic and decided to lift the date rule 
for those hours but only if the couples 
proceed to the gym and only the gym. 
And what worked this miracle? 

Well, we can not credit it to the 
Frosh's ingenuity for they are unac- 
quainted with the custom. Let's praise 
the powers that be — you name them — 
that (1) the Conservatory, as always, 
is willing to regulate its recital times, 
(2) the music is to be provided either 
by recordings or the new dance band, 
and (3) the governing bodies believe 
that a few capers will put everyone 
in a better mood for work and cooper-

We are devoted to our comfortable 
little Lebanon Valley; we listen to 
the "Shadow" instead of R. G. Swing; 
we read "Blondie" rather than the 
headlines — and the rest of the world 
goes by. Reverend Zeigler reminded 
us that some children must "steal" 
apples, British knitting brings forth 
the thought that there are cold gun- 
men; the World Friendship Project 
momentarily calls to light Albert 
Academy; and Miss Lee exposed the 
needs of students in war-stricken 
lands and we listen passively. If the 
New Regime discovered an unbeliev- 
able spirit of loyalty can not this new 
pulsation awaken us to concerns out- 
side of our smug, self-satisfied com- 
munity? We want to see Lebanon 
Valley vitally aware of, well-informed

Extension students at Centra] 
Building in Harrisburg discovered this 
week that Third Street is the safest 
parking area, with the Hallowe'en 
vandalism risks increasing progres- 
sively through Fourth Street to Sixth. 
Cars parked on the "other side" of 
Sixth Street were definitely subject- 
ed to insurance cancellation, if they 
could be identified after two hours of 
exposure to window-soaping, paint- 
scratching, and tire-deflating.

Gent students who like to toss off a 
coke between classes on Friday eve-

John Swope, of Lebanon, is very 
much concerned about classes on this

that it's Hallowe'en. Incidentally, it 
seems there's a football game some-

From the Wings 

The Wig and Buckle Club has fall- 
en heir to no less than a whole build- 
ing! The Acquisition of the new day 
student house has proved to be a dou- 
ble blessing because we are to have 
the use of the barn in back of it for 
making and storing scenery. This is 
something that's been needed for a 
long time. The little shop under the 
stage is crowded and inadequate, and 
there has always been the problem of 
the hammering's interfering with or- 
gan lessons. Stage setting has been 
a hurry-up job that was packed into 
a day and a half. Now there will be 

plenty of space for planning, building 
and painting. The stage committees 
can get to work much earlier and 
maybe we'll have some interesting re- 
sults! The new barn can be a real 
asset to all the dramatic productions 
on our campus this year. Of course, 
there's one problem — the place has to 
be heated. This sounds like a big wor- 
ry now, but it can certainly be done 
and the returns for a little fast think- 
ing and action will surely be great! 

The new and final date for "What 
Every Woman Knows" is November

I Religious News i 


The Life Work Recruits plan to 
cupy an important place on the cam 
pus calendar this year. Apart f ro 
their regular meetings, which are h l!! 
every two weeks, they have draft 
plans for two special occasions to 
which the entire student body will b 

The one event is to be a sacred 
music festival to be held in Decembe 
or January. The other occasion win 
not be until late in the college y ear 
probably in April or May. At that 
time films of a religious nature will 
be shown and special music will b 

It has been several years since L V 
C. witnessed a forum. The L. W R 
are planning one for next month; the 
date, Tuesday, November 18; the 
place, Philo Hall; the subject, "Th e 
Present World Outlook and Younn' 
People." The speakers will be an- 
nounced at a later date. This event 
is not planned for the Life Work Re- 
cruits, but for the entire campus. The 
success of the evening will be jua> e -i 
by the manner in which the student 
body as a whole supports such a pro- 

After a spectacular beginning it ap- 
pears the vesper services are, well- 
not doing as well as might be expect- 
ed. This Sunday evening an unusual 
program will be presented which mer- 
its the attendance of every student. 
The theme will be: "Music in Relig- 
ion." The entire service will be given 
over to religious music, with both in- 
strumental and vocal selections. 

The Foreign Mission Board of the 
United Brethren Church will convene 
at Martinsburg, West Virginia, Nov- 
ember 6 and 7. A program will be 
of an inspirational nature. Lebanon 
Valley College has been asked to send 
a representative to attend this con- 
ference. The Y Cabinet and the L. W. 
R. have elected Earl Reber as the rep- 
resentative of the college. 

This Sunday evening the Life Work 
Recruits will have charge of the ser- 
vice at the college church. _ Robert 
Mays will preach and Martha Crone 
will have charge of devotion's. 

For some reason or other there 
seems to be a general impression 
among the students that the Life 
Work Recruits is an organization re- 
served for ministerial students. This 
is not true, for the present member- 
ship, as well as that of previous years, 
consists of many who are not study- 
ing for the ministry and who have 
no intentions of doing so. If y° u are 
interested in spiritual matters, y oU 
are invited to become a member of 
this organization. The program this 
year is much more extensive than i' 1 
former years, and you will find it a 
challenge to your interest and coopei- 

for a week now and the cast has a 
pretty fine start. Donald Bait- 
ley called a business meeting of the 
club last Wednesday and has started 
to line up his committees for stages- 
publicity, and make-up. However, he u 
interested in getting some more h e ^ 
from the freshmen, new students, a 
those on campus who have not ta 
part in W. & B. activities before tJ» 
year. So ... if you've done work 
any of these fields, or if you'd like

perclassmen . . . see Bartley. _

stalled off the homesters' bids for 
points until the closing minutes of 
the second quarter when the P. M. C. 
boys received a break which they cap- 
italized on in a short time. The Dutch- 
men in the front ranks had turned 
in a sub par performance up to this 
time, but had not yielded. 

Coach Pauxtis withdrew his start- 
ing backfield of Lapolla, Piff, Nurthen 
and Hartnett, and inserted a combin- 
ation composed of Miller, Glenn, Ge- 
koski and Bartolomeo. Dorazio's kick 
was returned from the Cadet 20 to 
the 40 on a thrilling runback. Seven 
yards were reeled off in two off tackles 
thrusts by Bartolomeo to set up the 
play which spelled disaster. Glenn fad- 
ed deep to let fly a long pass down to 
the L. V. 19, where Maley, the Blue 
and White safety man who was cover- 
ing halfback Miller, pushed the in- 
tended receiver even though he was 
fully five yards from the ball and had 
little or no chance of getting it. The 
pass was ruled complete on interfer- 
ence in the vicinity of the Dutchmen. 

Bartolomeo circled end for nine 
Sards and then Gekoski crashed thru 
for a first down to the 6 yard stripe. 
On the third play after the first down, 
lef t tackle was the path of Bartolo- 
m eo in making a score which was dis- 
puted by the Lebanon Valley players 
u 'ho claimed that he had not crossed 
the line. After a brief discussion the 
sc °re was allowed after which Gekoski 
added the point by placement. 

The Flying Dutchmen were out- 
lined twelve first downs to one dur- 
"j? the first half, but showed a mere 
J lm Pse of the drive they had demon- 
/ated the week before in a 77 yard 
t rust to the Cadet eight early in the 

lrd period. Vantresca's intended

clla to end the thrust.

Our Opponents 

While the Flying Dutchmen were 
dropping the third contest of the cur- 
rent season to the P. M. C. Cadets, 
most of our opponents also saw ac- 
tion on the gridiron. Down Reading 
way a fighting Albright team bounced 
back after a listless first half to down 
the Moravian Greyhounds 13-0. Bob 
Spangler scored both Lion touchdowns 
on end-around plays. Coach Benny 
Friedman's C. C. N. Y. team finally 
crashed into the win column with a 
close 7-6 triumph over Susquehanna. 
The Bucknell Bisons, playing under 
the arcs on Friday night, were no 
match for the undefeated Temple 
Owls, losing 41-14. Only in the last 
few minutes could the Bisons score. 

The most important game from our 
point of view took place at Lancaster 
where the Gettysburg Bullets trimmed 
the F. & M. Diplomats by the score 
of 22-7. F. & M., after being out- 
played for 3 quarters, came back 
strong in the final quarter, but were 
only able to push over one touchdown. 

Juniata College dropped its first 
game of the year when they were out- 
classed by Washington College. When 
the final whistle sounded the Indians 
were on the short end of a 26-0 score. 

Our only other opponent, Blue 
Ridge, which has not won a game this 
year, took the day off in order to rest 
up for the Lebanon Valley tussle. 

The schedule for this week is: 

BUCKNELL vs. Western Mary- 

MORAVIAN vs. Arkansas A. & M. 
C C. N. Y. vs. Hobart. 
ALBRIGHT vs. F. & M. 
P. M. C. vs. Washington College.

Saturday morning the hockey team 
will meet its regular Homecoming 
Day rival, the Harrisburg Hockey 
Club, at 10:00 A. M. on the local field. 

In the past, the Harrisburg Club 
has usually defeated our own team. 
However, hopes are high this year to 
turn the tide. This organization is 
composed of women who played hock- 
ey in college, and now desire to keep 
up the work in the sport. This means 
that the opposition will be veterans, 
therefore that the game will be a close 

The hockey team would greatly ap- 
preciate a little of the student spirit 
displayed at the football games. Let's 
get out and cheer them on to victory. 

Tomorrow afternoon at 3 :30 the 
Freshman girls' hockey team will 
meet Shippensburg Frosh on our own 
field. This type of competition is an 
innovation at Lebanon Valley, as it 
is unusual to have enough Frosh in- 
terested to make up a team. This 
year, however, there are twenty-eight 
first year girls who are taking the 
game seriously. Of this number, only 
six have had previous hockey experi- 

Although the majority of the crowd 
are novices, they show remarkable ap- 
titude for the sport. In the brief train- 
ing period, the girls have progressed 
to a point where the rules are second- 
ary, and they can concentrate on skill 

If this group continues its interest 
and enthusiasm, it is safe to predict a 
strong team to replace the present 
players as graduation takes them. 

Head Archers 

President John Hampton 

Sec.-Treas. Verna Stonecipher 


Today we bow to Ralph Shay, ver- 
itable workhouse on the Valley for- 
ward wall. His affiliation as Sports 
Editor has kept this write-up long 

Shay has served as captain of the 
team in the five games the Dutchmen 
have played to date. He is well quali- 
fied to act as team captain because of 
his aggressiveness, strict attention to 
training regulations, perseverance, 
thoroughness, and intelligence. He is 
a student and a scholar of the game. 
This, coupled with his peppery talk 
and chatter along the line, his sports- 
manship, and his sheer love of the 
game, leaves little to be desired in a 
captain. He is one of the youngest, 
if not the youngest, collegiate captains 
in the country. 

He played his best game of the 
season against P. M. C. He fought 
hard and stubbornly for a losing 
cause, stopping the Red and White's 
advance on more than one occasion. 
Shay plays a whale of a game at his 
guard position in every contest, 
blocking and tackling all over the 
field. His heady ball playing, his ag- 
gressiveness and drive more than 
compensate for what he lacks in size 
and weight. He loves the game and 
likes it better when the going is tough. 
On the offense he is a hard hitting 
guard; on the defense his submarine- 
like tactics enable him to break 
through the opponent's line time and 
time again. Shay, your football in- 
spector is told, is one of the few col- 
legiate guards who alternate at both 
the right and left guard posts. 

Having played varsity ball for a 
nearby high school, Shay entered 
Lebanon Valley at an age when most 
athletes are still in high school. His 
enthusiasm for the game soon over- 
came any handicap he may have had 
in that respect. In his freshman year 
he was forced to view the games from 
the sidelines due tc a collar bone in- 
jury incurred in the early season 
workouts. His second year he saw 
action as a reserve guard, while in 
his Junior year he became a regular 
and a starter. This year he has play- 
ed every game, being relieved only a 
very few out of the 300 minutes play- 
ed by the Dutchmen to date. 

During the three years of college 
football he has maintained an ex- 
cellent scholastic record as a student 
in the classroom. He is and consistent- 
ly has been a member of that group 
comprising that well-known upper

L. V. C. Gridders Meet Blue Ridge 

Eleven In Homecoming Fuss 

Hockey Team Ties 
Shippensburg Squad 

Last Saturday the women's hockey 
squad traveled to Shippensburg to 
meet Miss Robb's team on the latter's 
field. The Blue and White girls held 
the teachers' college to a scoreless tie. 

Martha Wilt at center proved a for- 
midable foe from the opening whistle. 
She displayed real skill in keeping 
the white sphere in her opponent's 
territory. Margaretta Carey in goalie 
position grabbed the honors for mak- 
ing competition keen. Without her ef- 
forts, Shippensburg might have made 
the net a number of times, as they 
reached the scoring position with lit- 
tle difficulty. The defense had a diffi- 
cult task throughout the game, and, 
according to Miss Henderson, did a 
creditable bit of work. The forward 
line must be congratulated for its per- 
severance. Although they tried con- 
sistently throughout the game to gain 
territory from which the goal was ac- 
cessible, the opposition's defensive me- 
chanism offered no vulnerable points. 

The spirit of both teams was just 
what was expected. Friendly rivalry 
has always existed among the girls 
of the two institutions, and was mani- 
fested clearly in this game. Lebanon 
Valley is proud of the fact that for 
the first in four years, they did not 
have to bow to the Robb-coached 

The stick work of the Valley's team 
was menaced by the unusually good 
field. Being accustomed to a field as 
rough as the one here on campus, the 
girls' stick work was a bit slow. The 
smooth playing field at Shippensburg 
meant a faster rolling ball, requiring 
quicker stick work. 

As an opener, this game served well 
to point out weaknesses. The forward 
line needs a little more initiative in 
plunging on, while the halfbacks must 
develop a closer follow-up. 

The Blue and White team is hoping 
to draw Shippensburg at the Cedar- 
Crest fray, and then play a different 
tune on the scoring angle. 

Come Saturday, November 1, the 
Lebanon Valley Flying Dutchmen will 
play hosts to Blue Ridge College in 
the Annual Homecoming game. 

This is only the second game in the 
series with Blue Ridge College, the 
Dutchmen copping the first tilt, play- 
ed last year in a sea of mud at Blue 
Ridge by the close score of 6-0. 

Blue Ridge will come here this week 
with a very unimpressive record, hav- 
ing, to date, not been able to win a 
single game. They dropped games to 
Albright, P. M. C, Moravian, LaSalle 
and Hoptra College all by substantial 
margins. However, this does not ne- 
cessarily point to an easy game as 
Blue Ridge was not scheduled last 
Saturday and enjoyed a week of rest 
while the Dutchmen played a gruel- 
ling game with P. M. C. and came out 
of it with numerous injuries. 

Blue Ridge's best showing to date 
took place in the Moravian game 
which they lost by a 13-7 score, and 
while for the most part they have not 
been able to score for themselves, only 
LaSalle has been able to score more 
than 20 points on them, which in com- 
parison with their season's record, 
shows a fine defensive record. 

Lebanon Valley on the other hand 
will attempt to bounce back into the 
win column after the Chester debacle 
and so a wide open game can be ex-

Hershey J. C. 

On Tuesday afternoon, in spite of 
a strong gale, the Blue and White's 
women archers shot their way to vic- 
tory over a somewhat inexperienced 
Hershey Junior College foursome. 
There were no exceptional individual 
scores turned in by either team, as 
the weather proved a real handicap. 
Since this was the first competition 
on campus this year, the spirit was

they are set to give a thrilling demon- 
stration of the "New Regime" for the 
benefit of the alumni. 

Alumni members of the Green Blot- 
ter Club as well as the present group 
in the organization are invited to at- 
tend a tea to be given at the home 
of Dr. and Mrs. George Struble im- 
mediately following the game. This 
is the first reunion the Ink Spots have 
had for several years. 

To climax a day of excitement and 
activity the "L" Club is sponsoring its 
annual Homecoming Dance to be held 
in the Annville High School Gymnas- 
ium at 8:30. 

All alumni who plan to attend the 
homecoming day activities are urged 
to make an effort to return to the cam- 
pus just one night earlier and cele- 
brate with the Lebanon County group. 
In keeping with a plan formulated last 
fall the Lebanon County Club of the 
Lebanon Valley College Alumni Asso- 
ciation will hold its Annual Dinner and 
Reception Friday, October 31, the 
night before the Annual Homecoming 
Day Program. This year the celebra- 
tion will be held at the Green Ter- 
race. Prof. Frederick K. Miller, pres- 
ident of the group, has arranged a pro- 
gram for the occasion. New motion 
pictures of campus activities will be 
shown during the evening and as an 
added attraction the high lights of the 
flashed on the screen. 

Undergraduates as well as home- 
comers have this full program ahead 
of them. Both participants and spec- 
tators anticipate this yearly opportu- 
nity to enjoy a real homecoming.

Let's Take a Walk 

One need only turn his mind to the 
many-hued leaves, the newly sprout- 
ing wheat, and all the other sights 
which belong to fall alone, and he'll 
have his coat and hiking shoes on and 
be out among these things before he 
has had time to realize what has im- 
pelled him to do so. Thus works the 
enchantment of these crisp October 
days. Many of those who take to 
walking in this season of the year 
and are not very well acquainted with 
this locality will find a bit of a prob- 
lem in the matter of where to direct 
their steps. Walking is usually quite 
a lot more interesting if one feels that 
his efforts are leading him to some 
worthwhile sight. 

The ideal place to which students 
mig ht walk is the site of the oldest 
tunnel in the United States which, in- 
terestingly enough, is located but four 
miles from Annville, directly north- 
east of Cleona. To get there, one goes 
north from Annville on the road lead- 
ing to the Water Works until he comes 
o the first intersection by a hard sur- 
face road; at this point turn right and 
continue on that road until reaching 
the tunnel, the site of which is indi- 
cated by a sandstone marker to the 
right of the road. The tunnel is di- 
rectly beneath the marker at the foot 
of the hill. This walk will take most 
of an afternoon, but what value is 
there in walking if one can't expect 
to get a little exercise from it? 

A bit of the history of the tunnel: 
Through his reading in American his- 
tory, one will undoubtedly remember 
that' a certain era in the development 
of this nation's transportation facili- 
ties was typified by the construction 
of artificial inland waterways or can- 
als The canal which served this lo- 
cality joined the Schuylkill River, 
north of Reading, and the Susquehan- 
na River at Middletown, and was 
known as the Union Canal. One of the 
great headaches which confronted the 
canal engineers came when they en- 
countered Gravel Hill, the same ridge 
which runs north of Annville. The 
difficulty was met by the construc- 
tion of a tunnel about two miles north- 
west of the city of Lebanon. The con- 
struction of such a tunnel was quite 
an engineering feat in its day because 
they lacked such equipment as the 
compressed air drills of today and the 
improved methods of blasting. Thus 
handicapped, it required six years to 
bore through this hill with ordinary 
black gun powder for a distance of 
729 feet. The tunnel and the canal 
were completed in 1827, and the first 
boat passed along this route June 12 
of that year*. 

This tunnel stood in fairly good 
condition until several years ago when 
a W. P. A. project endeavored to re- 
store it completely. The masonry at 
both approaches was repointed, and in 
some cases rebuilt. This work was 
criticized quite sharply in some quar- 
ters because individuals felt that it 
spoiled original demeanor of the site. 
A real tragedy occurred a short time 
later, when, through faulty workman- 
ship, the masonry of the north ap- 
proach collapsed. However, in spite 
of this injudicious mutilation of the 
tunnel's exterior, the interior still re- 
mains to be seen as it was originally. 

It is hoped that this suggestion of 
a point to which you might walk and 
really see something worthwhile upon 
your arrival there will be well receiv- 
ed. Even if we are not particularly 
interested in historical landmarks, the 
walk would do any of us some good 
.ve can be assured.

Proposes New Defense 

Continued from Page 1 

Mr. Zeigler was born in Elgin, Illi- 
nois, and received his bachelor's de- 
gree from Ohio Wesleyan University 
and his master's degree in economics 
from the same institution. He studied 
law for two and one-half years at the 
University of Chicago but made an 
abrupt decision to enter the Christian 
ministry. He received his divinity de- 
gree at Union Theological Seminary, 
New York City. 

His ministry has been among people 
of both economic extremes. He has 
made a study of life in contrasting 
neighborhoods as well as the national 
and cultural backgrounds from which 
these people came. 

After ministering five years in the 
estate section of Long Island he came 
to serve an equal period in one of the 
city's most congested areas as minis- 
ter of Warren Street Church, a Meth- 
odist Institutional Church. He has 
made this particular interest present- 
day living conditions and more grow- 
ing therefrom as well as projects in 
slum clearance and low cost housing. 

Rev. Zeigler, acquired through the 
efforts of Dr. A. W. Wallace, was in- 
troduced to the student body by Dean 
A. H. M. Stonecipher.

the opera singer wUen he is confront-

Mr. Crooks believes in an American 
culture. He is all for English opera. 
With the appearance on the scene of 
mere men like Frank La Farge, all 
changeable opera will be successfully 
translated into English. 

"It is a difficult task translating 
opera. To do the work well one must 
be a literary man as well as a music- 
ian. Frank La Farge is the man if 
he had time. However, John Erskine 
has also had some success in that 

(Alexander) Richard Crooks was 
born in Trenton, N. J. After a career 
as a boy soprano he went to Europe 
to study. He made his Met. debut on 
February 25, 1933. In 1912 he sang 
with Ernestine Schumann-Heinke as 
a boy soprano. In 1924 he sang with 
her as a tenor. He acknowledges the 
fact that he owes much of his success 
to Schumann-Heinke's frank predic- 
tions and numerous gifts of advice. 

Though he himself was educated 
abroad, Crooks deems it no longer 
necessary for the American student 
to study on foreign soil. With Amer- 
ica as the center of world culture 
European artists will come to Amer- 
ica. It is all for the best, for it will 
"speed up" domestic students. 

To speak solely of Richard Crooks 
would be an injustice to his pianist, 
Frederick Schauwecker. Schauwecker 
did a fine piece of work. In his solo 
set, his rendition of "Clair de lune" 
gave the anti-Debussy-ites something 
to think about.

coming Saturday. The F. & M. game 
has always ranked second only to the 
Albright affair on the Valley schedule 
an d with the most important game al- 
ready under their belts, the Frockmen 
are anxious to make a clean sweep of 
their two major opponents. 

In former years the Diplomats have 
usually had too much reserve strength 
for the Dutchmen, but this year F. & 
M. has its smallest squad in modern 
football history. Only 23 men return- 
ed to the F. & M. campus and around 
them Holman was forced to build his 
grid machine. So far the Diplomats 
have succeeded in defeating Moravian 
and Albright both by a single point, 
while they lost a 22-7 decision to Get- 

In Johnny Quick the Diplomats 
have one of the finest small college 
backs in the Eastern Section. Last 
year it was Quick who sparked the 
team to the best season it ever had. 
This year injuries have hampered him, 
but you can depend on him to be in 
there for the Valley game. In Ander- 
son and Putchard, Holman has one 
fine defensive end and one excellent 
offensive end respectively. The back- 
field, outside of Quick, is made up of 
substitutes from last year's team, and 
w ho incidentally are improving with 
each game. 

Against this, Coach Frock will pit 
his strongest team, probably lining up 
^h Staley and Kubisen at the ter- 
minals, Mateyack and Schmalzer at 
the tackle slot, Shay and Eminhizer 
at guard and Wasileski over the ball. 
In the backfield Matala will direct the 
team from quarterback, Nick Dorazio

CliO'Kalo Sponsors 
"Cotton Ball" Rush 

On Saturday night at 8:00 P. M., 
the rushing season will continiue its 
program for freshmen with a Clio- 
Kalo joint get-together in the gym. 
Those who have met Clio-Kalo's Black 
Mammy (at the bulletin board in the 
Administration Building) will not be 
surprised to learn that guests are ex- 
pected to wear southern costume, in 
harmony with the plantation theme. 
The host, a Southern "Colonel," will 
sutain the best traditions of southern 
hospitality at the "Cotton Ball." 

The intermission program has 
scheduled music by a Girls' Trio — 
Ruth Wix, Rae Sechrist, and Mar- 
guerite Martin, and by a Male Quar- 
tet — George Moore, Herbert Curry, 
Kenneth Fidler, and Robert Kern. 

Juke-box dancing throughout the 
evening will be stimulated by liquid 
refreshment. But the feature attrac- 
tion will be one of those dances in 
which the true southern spirit is rep- 
resented, a Virginia Reel danced by a 
troupe of girls. Under the genial wel- 
come of the "Colonel" and the color- 
ful southern motif in decorations, the 
"gym" will become for a night a part 
of the old South.

Save Alumni 
From Death 

Homecoming Day at Lebanon Val- 
ley College brought many interesting 
tales concerning the recent experi- 
ences of L. V. C. alumni, but none 
so thrilling as one involving the nar- 
row escape of August "Butch" Her- 
man '40 and Roy Weidman '39 when 
they were forced to abandon their 
plane and resort to ripcord descend- 

Roy Weidman, a private in the In- 
fantry, and his friend were visiting 
Herman, a pilot at Langley Field. De- 
spite the fact that weather conditions 
were uncertain, Herman offered to 
take his visitors for a ride. 

They were aloft but a short time 
when the clouds closed in below them 
and they found themselves surrounded 
by soupy vapors. The plane's instru- 
ments for blind flying were not func- 
tioning and the trio were forced to 
fly around looking for a break in the 
clouds. They found no break and their 
gas supply was rapidly depleting. 

They were on their last tank of 
gasoline when Herman spotted a red- 
dish cast on the clouds below him. 
He surmised this to be the reflection 
of a neon sign. Turning from this 
place Herman instructed his passen- 
gers to bail out.

Scholastic Who's Who Names 
Ten Lebanon Valley Seniors 

Representatives From Many Departments Chosen 
For Outstanding Qualities 

The Who's Who among Students in American Universities and Colleges 
has just announced the acceptance of 10 Lebanon Valley seniors nominated 
for inclusion in their Who's Who for the year 1941-42. To be included in 
Who's Who, a student must have a combination of the following qualities to 
indicate that he is outstanding and an asset to his school: character, lead- 
ership in extra-curricular activities, scholarship, and potentialities of future 
usefulness to business and society. 

The Lebanon Valley students receiv- 
ing this honor are Martha Davies, 
Phoebe Geyer, Donald Glen, David 
Gockley, Ruth Heminway, Marjorie 
Holly, Robert Mays, Ralph Mease, 
Earl Reber, and Ralph Shay. All of 
these students have done outstanding 
work in various campus activities. 

The first of these, Martha Davies, 
has served as a member of La Vie 
staff since her freshman year and is 
now editor. She was also literary 
editor of the Quittie. The Green Blot- 
ter Club claims her as Head Scoop. 
She has served as a member of the 
Y. W. C. A. Cabinet, is an active mem- 
ber of the Wig & Buckle Club and 
has appeared in numerous dramatic 
productions on campus. In addition she 
also finds time for membership in a 
social society, Delphian. 

Phoebe Geyer is one of those ver- 
satile persons who combines outstand- 
ing work in sports with literary ac- 
complishment. She participates in all 
girls' sports and last year was voted 
best girl athlete at L. V. Among her 
other attainments are cabinet member 
of W. A. A., president of Y. W. C. A., 
vice president of W. S. G. A., a mem- 
ber of the Green Blotter Club, Life 
Work Recruits and Delphian. 

Donald Glen, sometimes better 
known as "Charlie," could well be call- 
ed one of the "pep" boys. He goes, 
from one activity to another showing 
the same enthusiasm and vigor in all. 
He is now president of the Student 
Faculty Council, a member of the 
Men's Senate, the Y. M. C. A. Cabi- 
netj La Vie Staff and of the fencing 
team. He has served as treasurer of 
his class and as an active member of 

David Gockley is the only one of the 
10 who has not been at L. V. the full 
time having transferred from Shenan- 
doah. Nevertheless, in the short time 
he has been here he has become well 
known. He is now serving as presi- 
dent of Y. M. C. A., and as active 
member of Life Work Recruits. He 
belongs to Wig & Buckle and has fea- 
tured in several campus productions. 

Ruth Heminway is another girl of 
all trades. She is president of W. S. 
G. A., president of German Club, sec- 
retary of Student Faculty Council, 
features editor of La Vie, Y. W. C. A. 
Cabinet member, editor of the "L" 
book. She has served as secretary of 
her class and as an active member of 

Marjorie Holly has been a sports 
enthusiast, taking an active part in 
girls' athletics at L. V. and serving as 
president of W. A. A. Delphian also 
claims her as prexy. Last year she 
was one of the section editors of the 
Quittie. In her spare time you'll find 
her frequenting the biology lab. 

Robert Mays is one of the leaders in 
religious activities on campus. He is 
now president of Life Work Recruits, 
secretary of the German Club, and a

Bucknell President 
To Speak In Chapel 

In an extended chapel period Tues- 
day, November 11, Lebanon Valley Col- 
lege will have their second guest 
speaker of the year in the person of 
Dr. Arnaud Cartwright Marts, presi- 
dent of Bucknell University. Dr. 
Marts in addition to being presi- 
dent of Bucknell since 1935 has also 
become well known as a financial 
counsellor, having first served in that 
capacity during the period of the first 
World War. 

The 8 o'clock classes will be omitted 
on Tuesday and the 9:15 classes will 
then meet at 8 o'clock.

EXPANSION appeared at the head 
of an editorial last week. Those opin- 
ions expressed in it were of a com- 
paratively small group of Lebanon 
Valley. They were of a group which 
feels that we need an added push to 
make us as well-informed in interna- 
tional events as our status as think- 
ing, college students requires. 

In the all too recent past authori- 
tative chapel speakers have been pre- 
sented to the student body. So many 
cut chapel, slept through it, or cried 
"Mere Propaganda!" on the way out, 
that such addresses were discontinued. 
Today we believe that our college men 
and women can weigh the words they 
hear, profit by the views of those who 
are students of the subject on which 
they speak, and so reach conclusions 
or convictions by such open-minded- 
ness. If this is the case a new series 
of speakers of note on timely topics 
will be brought to L. V. C. students. 
. . . However, the decision is up to 
you. We make the following proposi- 
tion. . 

On Friday morning you will be giv- 
en a questionnaire on which you are 
to show your preference in the mat- 
ter. Four additional questions of vi- 
tal interests, which are being placed 
before you for use in a poll of under- 
graduate opinion being conducted by 
Yale, will be added. Entirely depend- 
ent upon your reaction will our next 
moves be. Should you state your de- 
sire to hear the best thinkers speak- 
ing on the principal issues of the day 
such a program will be forthcoming. 
A student committee working with the 
faculty will endeavor to present such 
men to you. 

Will you hesitate in making your 
decision long enough to determine 
where you are going to stand — are 
you going to stay in your shell pro- 
tective with the other snails, or dare 
to know the world about you? 

There have been some complaints to 
the effect that certain organizations 
on the campus have not been receiv- 
ing their due publicity. On the other 
hand, some of these groups have in 
the past been hard to approach for in- 
formation because there is no one per- 
son responsible for publicity. LA VIE 
COLLEGIENNE desires to treat all 
organizations fairly and squarely, but 
to do so we must have their coopera- 
tion. Within the next few days we ask 
that every organization having a pub- 
licity chairman please notify LA VIE 
through the box in the Library as to 
the identity of the same. Thank you. 

The Editors. 

Eve-Extension Notes 

Evening and Extension students 
know about the N. Y. A. in a vague 
sort of way. Something about gov- 
ernment in education, and heated ar- 
guments on the topic can be started 
at the drop of a three-lettered gov- 
ernment agency. Setting academic at- 
titudes aside and getting down to per- 
sonal number of Eve-Exten- 
son enrollees are griping about be- 
ing left out of the N. Y. A. fold. The 
reason: They can't look forward to a 
promotion to the W. P. A.

Winifred Gantt, of Harrisburg, an 
evening student who has a very defi- 
nite interest in L. V. C. day classes, 
was engineered into a strategic posi- 
tion right on the lap of her interest 
last Friday night returning to Har- 
risburg in a slightly over-crowded au- 
to. The whole thing looked very in- 
cidental, but it is reported to have 
been planned well in advance by en- 
couraging friends. The interest's 
name is not revealed, except that it 

starts with "Jack." 


From Dr. Shenk's evening class in 
History of Civilization comes the in- 
telligence that many interesting epi- 
sodes not found in the text are related 
to give added value to the class. Stu- 
dents in Dr. Shenk's classes have the 
advantage of this grand professor's 
vast store of informal historical ma- 
terial gathered through the years. 

The evening class on Music His- 
tory and Appreciation will not be held 
this week (Friday, November 7), as 
Miss Gillespie is serving on a panel 

at Pennsylvania State College.

Merle Freeland, professor of piano 
at Lebanon Valley College, will give 
a concert for the Harmonia Circle of 
Lebanon on Monday evening, Novem- 
ber 17, at eight o'clock. Prof. Free- 
land, who makes numerous concert 
tours throughout the year, was sched- 
uled to play in Chicago on November 
3, but due to illness was forced to 
cancel the engagement. 

Miss Mary E. Gillespie plans to at- 
tend the meeting of the Pennsylvania 
Association of Deans of Women in 
Harrisburg on November 7 and 8. 
The sessions are to be held at the 
Penn Harris Hotel. At the Friday 
morning and afternoon pre-sessions 
L. V. C.'s Dean of Women will act as 
official hostess. 

German professor, Dr. Lena Louise 
Lietzau, addressed the Modern Lang- 
uage Club of Reading on Monday, 
November 3, at the American House. 
Her subject was "How the war has 
affected the teaching of foreign lang- 
uages and the challenge we face in 
meeting present conditions." 

President Clyde A. Lynch spent 
Sunday, November 2, at Mohnton 
where he gave the Rally Day address 
and evening sermon at St. John's 
Lutheran Church. At the evening ser- 
vice two violin solos were furnished 
by Marvin Detambel with Hazel For- 
noff accompanying. Mrs. Lynch, Hazel 
Fornoff and Dr. Lynch were enter- 
tained in the Detambel home. 

In the next week Dr. Lynch will 
go to Harrisburg, Roanoke, Virginia 
and Dayton, Ohio. On November 6, 
the meeting is of the Executives Club 
at the Penn Harris Hotel, Harrisburg. 
The trip to Roanoke will enable him 
to speak at the Sunday School and 
Church of the First United Brethren 
Church on November 9 while the Day- 
ton jaunt will take Dr. Lynch to the 
meetings of the Board of Christian 
Education on November 10 and 11.

From the Wings 

' While scanning the drama section 
of the New York Times the other Sun- 
day I came across an article that got 
my attention by its title and held it 
through eight columns. It is called 
"The Theatre as Religion" and the 
columnist was Maxwell Anderson. 
Strange as it may seem to the casual 
observer of our modern drama of the 
last few decades, Mr. Anderson claims 
that one of the chief maxims which 
playwrights must obey is that excel- 
lence on stage is always moral excel- 
lence. The moral atmosphere of a 
play must be healthy because an au- 

dience will not tolerate the triumph 
of evil on the stage. When a producer 
is choosing a hero he must pick a 
superior person who can stand the 
concentrated lights of the stage and 
the concentrated scrutiny of a thou- 
sand fellow creatures . . . and the 
character must present some sort of 
an ideal to satisfy the average audi- 
ence. The writer illustrates these 
great facts from plays of all eras. The 
thesis of this article is well worth 
quoting here: "But the theatre is a 
religious institution devoted entirely 
to the exaltation of the spirit of man.

The freshman Y. W. C. A. cabinet 
officers were elected this week with 
Genevieve Stansfield acting as chair- 
man. Those elected are: Helen Bush 
president; Alma Brandt, vice presi. 
dent; Marie Werner, secretary; an( j 
Sally Porter, treasurer. Our congrat- 
ulations and wishes for a successful 
year! This election 'should serve as a 
challenge to the Men's Y to organize 
the freshman Y. M. C. A. cabinet. 

The Forum Committee of the Life 
Work Recruits has decided to post- 
pone the date of the first forum, prob- 
ably until Tuesday, December 2. The 
reason, the Wig and Buckle play which 
is scheduled for the date previously 
announced. Can we urge you to at- 
tend both events? They are alike 
worthy of your interest. 

"The time has come" — to inform 
our readers about our ministerial 
students who are serving charges this 
year. Roger Morey is serving the Lick- 
dale Charge for the second consecu- 
tive year. We believe him to be quite 
popular with his congregation. Samuel 
Stoner was appointed to the Hillsdale 
Charge in September. We have every 
reason to believe that he will be quite 
successful. Ralph Manwiller, the boy 
from down Reading way, holds a 
charge in the Evangelical Church. Our 
best wishes Ralph! Charles Wolfe has 
the appointment at Northampton. 
Quite a responsibility for one so 
young. But, we understand Charlie has 
had quite a bit of training to prepare 
him for this work. We must not for- 
get our hard-working Bruce Souders 
who is serving the Millard Mission 
this year. You will get an excellent 
experience there, Bruce. 

The Student Quiet Hour on Wednes- 
day evening is attracting quite a large 
group of students each week. The 
program is absolutely limited to one- 
half hour, and is begins precisely on 
time. The services have been varied, 
but with a minimum of speaking. It 
would not be a bad idea if we all set 
aside this half hour each week for 
spiritual enrichment. 

Dauphin County 
Names L. V. C. 
Alumnus As Judge 

In the November fourth election J< 
Paul Rupp, an alumnus of Lebanon 
Valley College, was selected as 
judge of the Dauphin County Cou^ 
Mr. Rupp received his A.B. de '£ re , 
from L. V. C. in 1919 while he ha 
gained his M.A. and L.L.B. from D lC * 
inson by 1925. He was admitted to t 
Dauphin County Bar in the la* 
year. A native of Steelton and g™ ^ 
ate of the high school in that P^j 
the new judge also served as sC 
teacher before actively entering 
legal field. ^ 

It is an attempt to prove that ^ 
has a dignity and a destiny, tha ^ 
life is worth living. There is no 
in my mind that our 

theatre, ms- 
of being, as evangelical ministers ^ 
to believe, the gateway to hel U 1 ^ 
much of a worship as the thea g 
the Greeks and has exactly the 
meaning in our lives."

,jje Vultures of Blue Ridge College, 
iflje three scampers into paydirt 
ff ould have been labeled spectacular 
in perfect weather and since Satur- 
day was just the opposite, the Frock- 
-, en deserve praise heaped upon them 
for the brand of ball displayed under 
t l, e existing conditions. 

After the visiting kickoff went out 
f bounds and the ball was placed on 
the Blue and White 35 yard line, Ven- 
tresca, Dorazio and Matala alternated 
t0 advance to the 8 where the boy 
from New Windsor took over. Ven- 
tresca returned their punt thirty-one 
yards and then scored around left end 
after Beshore had picked up five on 
a buck. Matala's attempted pass for 
the point was batted down. 

Early in the second period Paul 
Mateyak, husky tackle from Tamaqua, 
intercepted a daring Blue Ridge pass 
and sprinted thirty-five yards to chalk 
up another six points for the Valley. 
The placement for the point was wide 
of the uprights as the slippery ball 
skidded from Matala's toe. > 

The highlight of the dusky after- 
noon came soon after the spectators 
were settled from the second touch- 
down. Piacentine punted when Blue 
Ridge failed to gain after receiving 
the L. V. C. kickoff. On his own 35 
yard line Harry Matala gathered in 
this kick and cut down the west side- 
line, barely squeezing between some 
tacklers and the boundary. Blockers 
picked off opponents in veteran style 
as the field general scampered thru 
,the mud to cross the broad stripe 
standing up. Beshore crashed through 
the center to mark up the only extra 
point of the day. 

The Blue and White attack was led 
k Ventresca, Matala and Dorazio 
Me Captain Shay, "Don" Staley, 
"Hank" Schmalzer, "Steve" Kubisen

While the Flying Dutchmen were 
wallowing their way to 19-0 decision 
over Blue Ridge, all of our opponents 
also saw action, so let's take a quick 
look around and see what happened. 

The big game of the week from our 
standpoint was the shindig which took 
place on Williamson Field in Lan- 
caster. The unpredictable Albright 
Lions after getting off to a 12-0 lead 
once again fell apart at the seams 
long enough for the F. and M. Diplo- 
mats to score two touchdowns and add 
one extra point for a 13-12 victory. 
In the final quarter the Lions came 
back strong but after making a first 
down on the Diplomats' four yard 
line they were unable to score. The 
Diplomats were constantly in trouble 
but drove on three different occasions 
to turn back the Deitz-men. 

Bucknell proved themselves too 
strong for W. Maryland, winning 
iandily by a 26-7 count and P. M. C. 
continued on their new winning streak 
by downing Washington College 22-0. 

The play beys from down Arkansas 
way invaded these parts again when 
them met the Moravian Greyhounds 
under the arcs at Bethlehem. The re- 
sult was as expected, the Greyhounds 
winning over the A. and M. boys by 
the small score of 33-0. 

Coach Benny Friedman's boys made 
it two straight when they took a 6-0 
decision over Hobart while the last of 
our opponents — Juniata was scalped 
by Westminster to the tune of 27-12. 
This marked the second consecutive 
loss for the Indians.

Can You Taste . . . 
So-o-o-o Good 




Plugging Wingman 1 



. . . who has demonstrated on every 
occasion that hard work and success 
go hand in h"nd on the field, in the 
classroom., and on the campus. 


This scribe has taken occasion this 
week to bring to the attention of fol- 
lowers of the Lebanon Valley football 
eleven the name of a worthy wearer 
of the Blue and White. Joe Carr has 
exemplified to the letter the true spir- 
it of dogged stick-to-itiveness during 
the past four years of gridiron his- 
tory at L. V. C. 

Carr turned out for the Valley 
squad three years ago only to find 
that many members of the squad of 
the previous fall had returned to bat- 
tle for the assignments at the end ter- 
minals. As a result, Joe found himself 
watching the game from the sidelines 
throughout this first try at the fall 
sport at this institution. Nevertheless, 
Carr was seen on the field early every 
day working out to perfect himself 
and to gain a background in funda- 

In the early pre-season workouts 
in his sophomore year, our lanky end 
seemed ready to serve the Dutchmen 
at one of the wing jobs. Bad luck 
dogged our athlete when he received 
a broken foot just prior to the first 
contest on the schedule. Not satisfied 
with remaining inactive Carr threw 
away his crutches and again donned 
his uniform in time to see action in 
the last two games of the season. Last 
year Carr jumped into the breach 
several times when the starters were 
injured and relief was necessary. Dur- 
ing this time constant improvement 
was seen in his play and merited the 
opportunities to perform on the grid- 
iron for the Valley on these occasions. 

But in his senior year at L. V. 
he has finally come into his own as 
a dependable gridman. Only the. fact 
that two of his own classmates had 
seen more action in other years while 
he himself was sidelined had prevent- 
ed his being named with the starting 
aggregation until last week. At that 
time Joe took the field with the first 
eleven for the first time in four years. 
This choice of the coaches was re- 
warded by fine defensive play and an 
outstanding game with the ball in 
possession of the Frockmen. 

Carr is not known to the faculty 
and students of Lebanon Valley Col- 
lege for his performance on the grid 
turf alone, but has proved himself a 
worthy leader in many campus or- 
ganizations and a student in the lec- 
ture-room. Seriously going to work 
at the reading and writing business, 
Joe has earned himself the respect and 
admiration of his fellow students. 

We salute a fine athlete, an excel- 
lent scholar, and a gentleman.

Last Friday afternoon, in spite of 
a cold driving rain, a stocky Shippens- 
burg Frosh hockey team came to our 
own field to meet the L. V. C. Frosh. 

The inexperience of the teams proved 
a slight handicap, but since the teams 
were equally inexperienced, compe- 
tition was keen. Taking the ball on 
the first volley, the Blue and White 
girls made a fairly steady advance into 
the opponent's territory. Before the 
first quarter was over, our own first 
yearlings evaded S-burg's goalie, and 
the score was 1-0. The second quarter 
offered opportunity to roll up another 
pointer for L. V. C. 

The second half of the game put 
Shippensburg on its feet, and the 
girls tied the score. However, by the 
end of the game, Lebanon Valley 
gained a one point margin over her 
opponents, making the final score 3-2 
in the Blue and White's favor. 

The freshman team as a whole 
plays a slick game of hockey. Stone- 
cipher and Waller accounted for two 
goals while Dorothy Campbell wound 
up the scoring end. Audrey Heidegard 

played a strong game in the position 
of full back, while Porter, Raab and 
Moyer held the half-back positions 
with real finesse. 

After such a display of skill and 
good sportsmanship, we'll be looking 
for more good work from the same 

In case you don't know, the rain 
last Saturday proved too much for the 
Harrisburg Hockey Club. The game 
probably will be played at a later 

On Saturday the girls' hockey team 
sets sail for the annual Play Day at 
Cedar Crest. The girls will compete 
with the hostess school, Shippensburg 
and Susquehanna. The teams will 
draw for the two games to be played 
in the morning, and after lunch, losers 
play losers while winners do likewise. 

After the Frosh triumph of last 
Friday, the upper class gals are out 
for a kill, to hold up the record. Here's 
wishing them luck!

Clio Holds Tea 
For Freshman Girls 

From 4:00 to 5:30 p.m. on Tuesday 
afternoon the Clionian Literary So- 
ciety held its annual tea for the fresh- 
men. The Clionian colors, yellow and 
white, were brought out in the floral 
decorations. At the table Mrs. Amos 
Black and Miss Mary E. Gillespie pre- 
sided. A string trio composed of Vic- 
toria Turco, Betty Shillott, and Jessie 
Robertson provided the music. In ad- 
dition to tea, open face sandwiches

will probably start at left half with 
Matt Maley at right half. Fred Beshore 
will probably round out the backfield, 
operating from the fullback spot. 

So far in the series the Diplomats 
have a decided edge, the last Valley 
victory coming in 1939 by an 8-7 
score. This year, however, the teams 
are more evenly matched with the 
Dutchmen probably having a slight 
edge. This writer, however, is willing 
to go out on the limb and pick the 
Dutchmen to win by two touchdowns.

Roy Weidman had never been in a 
plane before, but he had been instruct- 
ed as to the proper procedure in such 
a situation. Without hesitation he 
jumped. Weidman's friend had had 
flying experience, but cringed when 
his turn came. He went to the door 
of the plane several times and always 
closed the door without jumping. Her- 
man, noticing his peculiar behavior, 
banked the plane when the door was 
again opened thereby throwing his 
last passenger out. 

Then came Herman's turn. He lev- 
eled off his ship and turned off the 
ignition. Having done this, he too 
bailed out. 

The three of them reached the 
ground safely. To their amazement 
they landed in a small peninsula eight 
miles across off Cape Charles, Virgin- 
ia. The plane, a total loss to the U. 
S. Government, came to rest in a pine 
forest nearby. 

August and Roy are now referred 
to as "Ripcord" Herman and "Rip- 
cord" Weidman. With the assumption 
of their titles they were admitted to 
the Caterpillar Club — a national, ficti- 
tious "honorary society" for those 
who have been forced to parachute 
from a plane in an emergency.

On Tuesday afternoon, aided by 
perfect shooting weather, the L. V. 
archers shot their way to triumph 
over the Shippensburg archers. Al- 
though the men's teams were incom- 
plete, everyone shot in competition 
with another person. Among individu- 
al scores, Sam Stoner came out on the 
top of the pile with a score of 484, 
while Carey crowded close behind with 
454. Among the opposition, Miriam 
Harclerode and Wendell Ditmer cap-

The girls' teams were both complete, 
so it was possible to compete according

Diplomats Hold 
Dutchmen To 
Scoreless Tie 

Home Team Foils Seven 

Despite the fact that the gridiron 
teams of Franklin and Marshall and 
Lebanon Valley College started a ser- 
ies back in 1899 and played sixteen 
games to date, Saturday afternoon 
was the first time in which the battle 
ended in a scoreless deadlock. More 
than seven thousand fans witnessed 
the tightening of the Diplomat for- 
ward wall on seven occasions when the 
"Flying Dutchmen" invaded scoring 
territory on the Williamson Field in 

Three of the Blue and White's ad- 
vances were halted when Matala's at- 
tempted field goals missed their mark 
by narrow margins. Tony Ventresca's 
pass was intercepted to end a third 
period drive while aerials fell incom- 
plete to end other thrusts. 

The thirty-yard line marked the ex- 
tent of Franklin and Marshall's jour- 
neys toward the broad stripe. The ball 
landed there following a second period 
passing attack, but the Diplomats fail- 
ed to capitalize on their good fortune 
as they wound up on the 49 yard 
marker after three successive losses. 
A holding penalty cancelled a long- 
gain made on a pass from Monro to 
Traub in the third chukker, while Ben 
Wasileski halted the homesters in the 
final canto by intercepting an enemy 
aerial in scoring territory. 

The Valley rushed the Diplomats 
right off their feet — 188 yards to 96, 
but came out on the short end of the 
91 and 37 yards gained through the 
atmosphere and the thirteen and elev- 
en first downs registered in the fray. 

"Big Don" Staley, who acted as L. 
V - C. captain in the absence of in- 
jured Ralph Shay, displayed the abil- 
ity to "dish out" punishment as well 
a s absorb it at his tough end assign- 
ment while he turned in the best game 
of his collegiate career, both offensive- 
'y and defensively. The stalwart 
^ngman smashed play after play by 

aggressiveness and persistent

L.V.C. Fencing Team 
Begins Training 

Though little has been heard from 
the Blue and White fencing team so 
far this year, there is a great deal of 
satisfaction in learning that the foils 
and sabers men on our campus have 
been working out in the gymnasium in 
the past several weeks despite the fact 
chat no match has been scheduled for 
quite some time. This spirit indicates 
that this small but ambitious group 
of industrious fencers is anxiously a- 
waiting the match and are quite eager 
to send an experienced team to meet 
representatives of the few colleges 
sponsoring this sport. Workouts to 
date have been limited to conditioning 
and instruction in the fundamentals 
of foil play.

Chapel Poll Reveals 
Isolationist Trend 
Among Student Body 

According to the poll conducted in 
Chapel last Friday, the student body 
of Lebanon Valley College is predom- 
inantly isolationist in sentiment, but 
possesses an open mind in regard to 
international affairs. 

Answering the question, "Would you 
as a Lebanon Valley College Student 
be interested in hearing well-informed 
speakers present to us both sides of 
nationally and internationally signifi- 
cant problems?" 210 (or 97%) of the 
216 ballots handed in declared in the 
affirmative. In accordance, therefore, 
with the expressed wishes of the stu- 
dent body, Donald Glen as president 
of the Student-Faculty Council ap- 
pointed Elizabeth Sattazahn, Robert 
Mandle, and Martha Davies to serve 
on Dr. Wallace's Chapel Program 
Committee to represent student opin- 
ion in the selection of speakers. 

The break-down of the Lebanon 
Valley Poll (drawn up after the poll 
conducted by the Yale Daily News on 
a nation-wide scale) reveals that the 
student body is rather less isolation- 
ist in its point of view than the aver- 
age American student body. Compar- 
ing the percentages as gathered by 
the La Vie Staff and by the Student 
Opinion Surveys of America: To the 
question, "Do you think that the

Frosh<Soph Game 
Scheduled To Be 
Played Next Week 

Underclassmen Prepare For 
Gridiron Tussle 

Now that the varsity football sea- 
son draws to a close this week, cam- 
pus sports followers are turning their 
eyes and ears to gain reports of the 
annual Frosh-Soph football tussle 
scheduled to take place exactly one 
week from today on the athletic field. 
These energetic underclassmen will 
break off all contacts with each other 
on that day and do their best to gain 
a victory. The equipment needed by 
the varsity eleven will be turned over 
to these two groups to be used in the 
do-or-die fray promised by the coach- 
ing staffs of both teams. 

At first glance it might appear that 
Harry Matala and Hank Schmaltzer 
will find their boys taking the field 
the favorites by big odds. The Sophs 
will line up with an eleven composed 
largely of the same men who lost to 
the present junior class last year in a 
hard fought 12-6 contest. Sparking 
the Sophs in the backfield will be Bob 
Kern who performed so capably as a 
bucker and punter last year along with 
Harry Miller. 

The line will be taken from the fol- 
lowing group of huskies: Zerbe, Wolfe, 
Stine, Edwards, Fidler, Neidig, "Pee 
Wee" Miller, Gerace, Bob Yannaccone.

Wig and Buckle Play Opens 
L. V. G. Dramatic Season 





Wedding of Actress 
Precedes L. V. Debut 

On Saturday evening, November 15, 
at 6:00 o'clock, Mary Jane Forry, 
junior, will be married to Albert Eu- 
gene Fulton, a fellowship graduate 
student in Chemistry at Lehigh Uni- 
versity, in the United Brethren 
Church at Hershey. The single ring 
ceremony will be used. 

Mary Jane is a newcomer on the 
campus. She is a graduate of Her- 
shey Junior College. While a student 
there she established for herself a 
noteworthy reputation in dramatics. 
Her best performance was her inter- 
pretation of Comtesse De La Briere in 
Sir James Barrie's "What Every Wo- 
man Knows." She will enact the same 
role for Wig and Buckle's audience 
on Tuesday night. 

Attended by four bridesmaids and 
a maid of honor, the bride-to-be will 
be given in marriage by her father. 

The bridegroom-to-be will be attend- 
ed by a best man and four ushers. 
The company will be dressed in busi- 
ness suits of blue serge. 

Following the ceremony the bridal 
company will retire to the Hotel Her- 
shey. Here a reception will be tender- 
ed to about thirty friends and rela- 
tives of the bride and groom. 

Men Day Students 

Elect Congressmen 

In a meeting of the men day stud- 
ents on Friday, November 7, the fol- 
lowing were elected to represent their 
respective classes in the Day Student 
Congress: Juniors, Franklin Patschke; 
Sophomores, John Hall; Freshmen, 
Edgar Schnee. 

From the Congress comes the re- 
port that the heat is on! The men day 
students need no longer feel that they 
are getting the cold shoulder. After a 
lengthy but inevitable delay, the heat- 
ng system at the Day Student Home 
was completed and put into operation 
on Wednesday, November 12. 

Club Presents Barrie's 
What Every Woman Knows 

The doors of Engle Hall will be 
flung open to theater-lovers Tuesday 
evening, November 25, at 8 o'clock, aa 
th Wig and Buckle Club presents its 
initial production of the season, Sir 
James Barrie's What Every Woman 
Knows under the direction of Dr. 
George Struble, the club's faculty ad- 

The play, well-known to American 
audiences, was produced in New York 
several years ago with Helen Hayes 
in the leading role. 

The story concerns a Scotch maiden, 
Maggie Wylie, who at the age of 
twenty-six is still unmarried because 
she lacks the necessary charm and 
beauty. Her brothers, always intensely 
loyal to their sister, have done their 
best to help her, but each attempt has 
ended in failure. Finally, a promising 
young scholar in rather distressing 
circumstances, happens upon the 
scene. The scholar, John Shand by 
name, needs books and money; Maggie 
needs a husband; and thereby hangs 
the tale. In exchange for money and 
the use of the Wylie books John agrees 
to marry Maggie at the end of five 

Although six years pass before the 
marriage actually does take place, 
John does not prove untrue to his 
promise. In the meantime he has ad- 
vanced his position until now he is 
a member of Parliament. Unfortunate- 
ly, the beautiful Lady Sybil enters his 
life and takes possession of his heart. 
Complications arise, but Maggie, whose 
intelligence makes up for lack of 
charm, knows what to do. 'There's a 
strange ending to this unusual play, 
and we discover "What Every Woman 

What Every Woman Knows is the 
first play to be produced on the cam- 
pus with the advantage of the new, 
larger space for the preparation of 
scenery. One of the scenes is an out- 
door scene in which the props for the 
Importance of Being Earnest will be 
used with the interesting addition of 
an umbrella table.

Topics For Biologists 

Stepping out of their regular sched- 
ule the Biology Club held its bi-month- 
ly meeting on Wednesday night, Nov. 
5, in the Biology Lecture Room under 
the guidance of its vice president, 
Marjorie Holly. Dr. Derickson, the 
club's adviser, presented an illustrat- 
ed talk covering the formation and de- 
velopment of the chick embryo. Fol- 
lowing this discourse, Donald Bart- 

ey presented colored motion pictures 
which revealed for study botanical 
gardens, natural phenomena and scen- 
ic beauties. The program was light- 
ened with cider, peanuts and pretzels. 

The meeting scheduled for Novem- 
ber 13 will not be held because of the 
meeting of the Pennsylvania Academy 
of Science at Lancaster. Biology Club 

uesident, Earl Reber, Marjorie Holly 
and club advisers, Dr. Derickson and 
Dr. Light, are planning to attend.

Curtain Going Up . 

Fresh from last year's ambitious 
season the Wig and Buckle club is 
showing the campus that it means 
business. We refer to its extensive 
drive to pack the house so that the 
actors wil not have that "vacant" 
feeling. We note their streamlined 
program which is the Barrymore's 
playbills' only rival. We call atten- 
tion to the activity of more than a 
chosen few of the club members — for 
example, the freshmen girls' canvass- 
ing Annville with tickets in hand. We 
anticipate a fine production and an 
incomparable year from such a group 
as this. 

Dollars and Sense . 

In a survey recently released by 
Time, Inc., it was shown that three 
fourths of all male college alumni are 
professionals or executives at the low 
age of forty. These figures also proved 
that the average size of college fami- 
lies is smaller while their average in- 
come is higher. 436,000 graduates earn 
median incomes of $3,680 while three 
times as many earn $2,350 annually. 

You might also be interested to 
know that the fields yieldng the larg- 
est returns are in order law, medicine, 
finance, manufacturing, sciences, arts, 
and transportation and utilities, while 
the ministry is the lowest paid. Those 
graduates who moved away from the 
immediate college region make more 
money than those who remain. 

The next time someone poses the 
question "Why go to college?" you 
can come back with some of these 
facts. Leaving aside the psychic re- 
turns from a college education you 
may state its real value in no mean 
terms. You may omit the worth of the 
friends you made, you may overlook 
the extra-curricular training, and you 
may skim over the purely cultural 
concomitants, and still have a convinc- 
ing answer. 

The next time you ask yourself, 
"Why am I here?" you had better 
look up this report in the November 
tenth Advertising Age. Then you may 
cease to envy your friends back home 
earning seventy-five cents an hour in 
defense industries. By all accounts 
you will probably be far ahead of them 
monetarily when you are forty in ad- 
dition to having some pleasant mem 
ories of college days that they can not 
purchase at any price. 

Eve-Extension Notes 

Evening and extension students fre- 
quently miss social and entertainment 
events precluded by their classes, but 
all will have the opportunity of hear- 
ing Dorothy Maynor sing on Friday 
night, November 28th, in Harrisburg. 
The event is sponsored by the Harris- 
burg Choral Society. According to 
the schedule, there will be no evening 
classes that Friday, due to the 
Thanksgiving Holidays. 

In the evening philosophy class re- 
cently, Professor Shettel over-esti- 
mated the tilt of his chair and went 
crashing to the floor in a situation 
which would jolt even a professor. 
Unshaken by the mishap, Prof. Shet- 
tel continued his discourse as usual 
until he had occasion to close a door, 
and then the chair-falling tension re- 
leased with a bang. 

Evening class students motoring 
from Harrisburg often have that care- 
worn appearance not because f the 
day's work, but due to the terriffic 
energy spent in settling international 
problems enroute. Their arbitrative 
activities are by no means limited to 
the mere field of international poli- 
tics. At the drop of a sentence they 
can transfer to any intriguing sub- 
ject. When this happens the prior 
topic of discussion is usually disposed 
of by planting it firmly in the air. 

Julia Robinson, arriving in Harris- 
burg after classes on Friday nights, 
has been going to 11th and Market 
Streets, and that's not home. It's re- 
ported that Julia is having midnight 
suppers every Friday. The neon lights 
are attractive, but there must be 
another factor. 

Eugene Mackley, eve-extension stu- 
dent who was graduated with a B.S. 
in Business Administration in '40, is 
taking additional work in management 
in Penn State-Federal defense courses 
at Harrisburg this year. 

From the Wings 

That very special excitement which 
always precedes the opening of a the- 
atrical performance is already in the 
air. If you've ever done any work for 
a play you know what I mean ... a 
sort of tense bustle that begins to 
show itself a week before the play is 
given and works itself up day by day 
to the final frenzy of opening night. 
As you've noticed through the front 
page story the Wig and Buckle play 
will be given five nights from now 
and at this point everybody is really 
beginning to dash around to help put 
it over successfully ! Many of the 
committees are already functioning 
vigorously. We hope that you are al- 
ready "ticket conscious." Incidentally, 
there is a complete list of all commit- 
tees printed on the last page of this 
paper. So if you are on one report to 
your chairman . . . he'll be looking 
for you. All you committee members 
will receive recognition for your ser- 
vices in the new type program that 
the club is putting out. It is very dif- 
ferent from anything we've ever had 
on campus before. There will be 
thumb-nail biographical sketches of 
the cast, a resume of the acts, and 
some information about the author . . 
it will include everything that could 
be of interest about the play! But 
such an enterprise must have ads and 
more ads to pay for itself, so . . . the 
publicity committee has really covered 
this town. Hardly a business man in 
Annville has not been given the chance 
to advertise in our program. A house 
to house canvass to sell individual 
tickets is also part of the program 
and posters are appearing in shop 
windows where they have never ap- 
peared before. It's all taking plenty 
of work, but the Wig and Buckle

Book Review 

Reveille in Washington by Marga re) . 
Leech is the happy result of a writ 
who is able to present an encyclop ec jj 
of facts in a manner that makes i 
much more enthralling reading tha 
most novels. 

Miss Leech paints for us a gj an ^. 

tapestry of Washington from th 

years 1860-1865, from the end f 

Buchanan's administration until the 

assassination of Lincoln. Wp 

" c see 

Washington as it appeared to foreign 
visitors whose sightseeing consisted of 
"six scattered buildings, a few dubious 
statues and one-third of an obelisk" 
— Nor is all the talk of war, for indeed 
the laying of the first street car tracks 
in Pennsylvania Avenue was an event 
ii major interest. Fine Sundays would 
find the local dignitaries, in their best 
clothes riding up and down the street 
basking in the envious gazes of the 
less fortunate ones lined along the 
curbs. As the transit system grew 
and more routes were added there 
came the problems of transfers which 
caused as much bewilderment and pan- 
ic as a battle. Long parades march 
down the Avenue, many regiments and 
garbed in as many different types of 
uniforms, off to a war that would be 
over surely in a month at the most. 
The Union's attitude towards the 
struggle is seen at Bull Run when all 
of Washington who were able packed 
picnic lunches, hired carriages and the 
ladies brought their opera glasses and 
stationed themselves on a hill over- 
.ooking the battlefield where they ex- 
ported to watch the glorious triumph 
of the North in comfort. However, 
many who rode out were forced to 
vaik home when the tide turned and 
the North in their mad stampede into 
Washington seized every conveyance 
they could. 

Like the mosaic that the book is, no 
one person has the center of the stage. 
Lincoln, Booth, Rose Greenhow, the 
glamorous southern spy, rub shoulders 
with contrabands, generals and office 
seekers. Lincoln worries over the price 
of the new rug in the East Room and 
Mrs. Lincoln steals across the river 
co Georgetown to consult her favorite 
fortune teller about domestic worries. 
Everything is in its proper perspec- 
tive and in a word or phrase Miss 
Leech can better describe a person or 
event than has been done in volumes 

This is the barest scratching of the 
surface and no review can really 
justice to this book nor could thei 
have been a better time for it to « a 
been written in.

Student Opinion 
Shows Majority 
Favoring Football 

AUSTIN, Texas, November— Re- 
cently President Robert M. Hutchins 
of Chicago announced that that uni- 
versity was getting along quite well 
without intercollegiate athletics. But 
the game continues to thrive in near- 
ly every other university and most of 
the smaller colleges. Furthermore, the 
s P«'t as it exists today has the ap- 
proval of nearly nine out of every ten 
Cfcll ege students. 

Only 5 per cent of the nation's col- 
le gians would substitute the big-time 
Sames with an intramural program,

ous because most of us don't get 
tackled out on the field." 

Nearly three years ago, when Dr. 
Hutchins began his fight against foot- 
ball, the Surveys found that only 24 
per cent of the students believed pro- 
fessional football would "some day 
become more popular than college 
football." And only 15 per cent at 
that time wanted colleges to give up 
intercollegiate competition. Judging 
from the present poll, football is gain- 
' rather than decreasing in popu- 

It is our pleasure this issue to sa 
lute the last of the sextet of senior 
members of the 1941 Lebanon Valley 
football eleven. John Swope completes 
the group of a half dozen gridmen who 
will play their last ball game for Jer- 
ry Frock this weekend when the 
Dutchmen engage the Juniata In- 
dians in the final conflict of the grid 

When Swope entered Lebanon Val- 
ley three years ago he decided to par- 
ticipate in a game which he had loved 
to watch from the bleachers but nev- 
er had the chance to play himself. 
Having attended a small high school 
which did not sponsor a football elev- 
en "Johnny" never had the opportu- 
nity to play the game which he loves 
so well except in sandlot battles in his 
home town. Encouragement from 
coaches and players gave Swope great- 
er determination to make good in the 
game despite the handicap encounter- 
ed by his inexperience in the fall 
sport. Swope was placed at a tackle 
position in his freshman year and set 
earnestly to work learning the funda- 
mentals of the game. Unfortunately 
for our husky gridder, the team of 
that year was studded with outstand- 
ing performers of the previous year's 
team in every position. 

In his sophomore year John was 
switched to the center post unexpect- 
edly and was faced with the work of 
learning a new role. At this same po- 
sition "Kid" Swope found himself 
forced to accept a substitute job with 
such fine ball players as Capt. Belmer 
and Alex Rakow battling for the pivot 
assignment. However, "Johnny" came 
through this year with quite a num- 
ber of quarters played. Last year the 
"Kid" was called upon several times 
to take the field with the starting out- 
fit and to play a major portion of the 
game when Rakow was benched with 
painful injuries. 

Though he has still not gained the 
first string of center assignment the 
"Kid" has seen plenty of action this 
year and has turned in games that 
have merited comment from coaches, 
fans, and players alike. Swope's use 
fulness is found in his ability to play 
a steady game under any conditions 
Though not a flashy ball player, he 
has performed consistently from his 
position when called upon. No player 
on the Valley squads in the past four 
years has shown as much industry 
and down-right persistence as has the 
individual whose grid career is re- 
j viewed this week. 

Honor Squad 
Breaks Even 
At Play Day 

Down Shippensburg 2-1 
Lose To Cedar Crest 5-1 

Last Saturday morning bright and 
early, the hockey honor squad set out 
for Cedar Crest College where there 
was held a Hockey Play Day. In ad- 
dition to the hostess school and our 
own girls, the teams from Susquehan- 
na and Shippensburg participated. 

Immediately following registration, 
which was scheduled for 10:00 A. M., 
the teams selected their captains for 
the day, Jane Stabley ably filling the 
office for the Valley girls. The cap- 
tains of the four teams then drew 
for opponents in the morning's fray. 
Lebanon Valley drew Susquehanna, 
leaving Shippensburg and Cedar Crest 
to fight it out. To use Miss Hender- 
son's own expression in speaking of 
the L. V. game, it was "the nicest 
hockey this bunch of girls has ever 
played." The girls came through on 
top by a one-point margin, the score 
being 2-1. Martha Wilt played an un- 
usually strong game, accounting for 
both pointers. She made a third goal 
which failed to count because the team 

was off sides. Betty Johns played a | begun between upperclass women and 

Frosh. The first year girls took the 
opener, raking across the oldsters with 
a 5-1 score. The "new regime" is real- 
ly on — even to the hockey enthusiasts ! 
Next Tuesday, November 18, is the 
date set for the second game, with 
the third to follow the next day. The 
tournament games will probably wind 
up the '41 hockey season, so hurry out, 
if you want to see any more games.

Among the coming week's activi- 
ties the hockey games cannot be pass- 
ed by unnoticed. On Friday afternoon 
the honor squad travels to Albright 
to meet their honor squad. The game 
should prove worthwhile seeing, as the 
competition between the schools is 
keen — or did you know? ! ! The Al- 
bright girls invited our team, not only 
for the game, but a Women's Athletic 
Association dinner and informal dance, 
as well. Let's hope they bring home 
the bacon, as did a certain other 
athletic organization on campus. 

Monday afternoon will afford anoth- 
er opportunity to see the hockey teams 
in action on home territory, as Mrs. 
MacKennon of Penn Hall is bringing 
two teams here to play two games. 
The first game will be a Freshman 
battle, to be played at 3:30. At 4:15 
the two honor squads will compete. No 
predictions whatsoever can be made, 
as Valleyites are not familiar with 
the brand of ball played by Penn Hall. 
You spirit-filled rooters will be wel- 
comed with open arms on the side- 
lines on Monday afternoon, so mark 
down the date in your little red book! 

As a means of promoting better 
practices, a hockey tournament has 

consistently hard game in the role of 
halfback, while Captain Stabley was 
an outstanding fullback. Loefflar of 
Susquehanna was the only player able 
to outwit Goalie Carey, to keep Sus- 
quehanna from being whitewashed. In 
the other early battle, Cedar Crest 
downed Shippensburg with a 3-0 score. 

Following the morning's activities 
the players were entertained at lunch 
in the college dining hall, where Miss 
Phyllis Hasse of ths Swarthmore 
High School was the guest speaker. 
In her talk she pointed out the ad- 
vantages of hockey playing, stressing 
the idea of friendships, team coopera- 
tion and playing the game for the fun 
of it, as well as to the best of one's 

The afternoon witnessed losers 
playing losers, and winners playing 
winners. The Blue and White team 
met strong opposition in the Cedar 
Crest girls, going down in defeat to 
the tune of 5-1. Vi Snell garnered 
Lebanon Valley's single scoring point 
in the afternoon game. Shippensburg 
was the only school to go home vic- 
tory-less, as Susquehanna eked out a 
1-0 win over the Teachers' College. 

The day's festivites wound up with 
a tea after the games of the after- 
noon. The girls deserve a pat on the 
back for the good work done last

His play dominated the attack by the 
five-man line which bottled up Frank- 
lin and Marshall's ground attack in 
an effective manner. 

Shay was forced to yield his start- 
ing position to John Hall who played 
his usual bang-up game for the full 
sixty minutes of the contest. Ralph, 
however, entered the fray, but lasted 
only a few plays as a bump aggravat- 
ed his injury to such a degree that he 
had to be assisted from the field. 

George Monro, the F. & M. star 
who was carried from the field late in 
the contest, was treated for a possible 
hemorrhage of the eye. 

The punting of "Nick" Dorazio was 
outstanding in the fracas as his eight 
punts averaged forty-five yards from 
the line of scrimmage. 

Frosh Hockey Team 
Defeats M<town 5*1 

Stonecipher Outstanding 
For Valley Squad 

Last Friday afternoon the fresh- 
man hockey team again triumphed 
defeating the Myerstown High School 
girls, to the tune of 5-1. Women's 
athletic authorities in this vicinity 
have been attempting to promote 
hockey in the high schools. Myers- 
town was among the first to take up 
the game, and the school is now in its 
third year of competition. In order to 
push along the promotion Miss Hen- 
derson has been willing to have the 
Frosh team compete with high school 

In Friday's game, Virginia Stone- 
cipher accounted for three of the five 
goals, while Zimmerman and D. Moyer 
each added one point to the score. Rie- 
ter made Myerstown's lone point. In 
spite of the score's being contradic- 
tory of that fact, the game was a close 
one, as the teams were well matched. 
Evelyn Heister proved a real asset to 
the team, holding the center halfback 
spot with remarkable efficiency. 

Again we might mention that the 
spirit among the Frosh is the kind we 
ike to see. They really possess that 
desirable trait known as stick-to-it- 
iveness. Out of twenty-five girls 
manifesting interest in hockey at the 
beginning of the season, there are 
twenty going out to practice regular- 
ly. This percentage is remarkably 
high in comparison to that of previous 
Freshman Classes. Keep up the good 
work, you '45-ers! 




Chapel Poll

ican merchant ships to enter the war 
zone?" At Lebanon Valley 67.5% 
answered No, 29.1% Yes, and 3.4% 
had no opinion; in the nation, 51% 
answered No, 42% Yes, and 7% had 
no opinion. 

To the question, "Do you believe that 
such revision will result in our entry 
in the war?" At Lebanon Valley 
49.3% answered No, 31% Yes, 19.7% 
had no opinion; in the nation 42% 
answered No (no more figures avail- 
able) . To the question, "If the United 
States enters the war, do you believe 
that we should send an A. E. F. to 
Europe?" at Lebanon Valley 62.7% 
answered No, 31.9% Yes, and 5.4% 
had no opinion; (no figures available 
for the nation) . 

Much of the interest of the replies, 
however, lies in the remarks added to 
the ballots. For instance, one individ- 
ual (who answered Yes to all the 
questions) observes that while the U. 
S. should enter the war eventually, 
now is not the time. And he further 
contends, that if we do enter the war, 
an A. E. F. will be necessary. Another 
argues, referring to the third ques- 
tion, that repealing the "Neutrality 
Act won't cause us to enter the war. 
The factor that shooting at our merch- 
ant ships will make us decide if we 
will enter the war." Still another 
wants to know "Where in Europe" 
will an A. E. F. be sent. 

Whether he is an isolationist or an 
interventionist, it is clear that the 
Lebanon Valley College undergradu- 
ate is sincerely interested in the prob- 
lems facing this country in a warring 
world; and while reluctant to plunge 
America into armed conflict, he is 
still fully aware that these problems 
cannot be solved by ignoring them. 
Out of this interest, this probing for 
the truth behind the smoke-screen of 
incomplete information, will come an 
understanding of the world today. And 
this understanding, which is really the 
aim of the college itself, will deter- 
mine the future of America. 

Frosh-Soph Game 

Continued from Page 1 

Three new comers will see action 
against the first year men. Transfer 
students Altman and Derr are being 
groomed to fill in with last year's ag- 
gregation. The ace in the hole of the 
sophomore coaching staff, however, is 
"Bad Boy" Hummel, play-caller and 
blocker par excellence, who was for- 
ced to forgo playing in the fray last 
year when an injury suffered while 
playing high school ball had not mend- 
ed sufficiently. 

Don Staley and George Smith were 
rather reluctant to give any informa- 
tion concerning the yearling outfit 
which they are coaching to meet the 
sophomore aggregation. But from 
rumors heard about campus it appears 
that these two mentors are planning 
to field a team well grounded in fun- 
damentals and possessing a wealth of 
reserve material. No information has 
been gained concerning the experience 
of the freshmen prospects but the 
names of several of them have been 
secured. They are as follows: Lloyd, 
Herb, Pruyn, Rumpf, Miller, Woh- 
brab, Stine, Albert, Brulatour and 
Delduco. This group is said to be 
supplemented by a list of names of 
equal length.

Disc Data 

In the previous columns Disc Data 
has been concerned with only classical 
music; but far be it from your hum- 
ble columnists to neglect the follow- 
ers of the "floy floy" or the lovers of 
the "jumpin' jive." Your columnist is 
a strict believer in a broad minded 
attitude when it comes to musical 
taste; that is, one should appreciate 
both swing and classical music, for 
they both have a prominent niche in 
musical art. However, there has come 
onto the scene in the past few years 
an over abundant amount of unadul- 
terated tosh and trash ; by that I mean 
sentimental nonsense and asanine nov- 
elty songs. In my humbie estimation 
that type of song does more to pre- 
vent the acceptance of popular music 
by the lovers of the classics than any- 
thing else ; ior example, 1 uon t Want 
to bet the World On Fire; and B-I tix. 
in most cases the classic lover's opin- 
ln is based on the type of songs just 
mentioned. Actually, both swing and 
the better sweet songs when excellent- 
ly arranged and played by the coun- 
try's greater bands such as Benny 
Goodman, Tommy Dorsey, and Jan 
aavitt are definitely oi some musical 
vaiue and are representative of good 
popular music. Not to be left out as 
exponents oi swing, perhaps the great- 
est, are the colored bands, ior they 
give us a distinct type of music that 
cannot be classed with that played by 
white bands. Among the Negro bands 
we nave such inimitable aggregations 
as Jimmy Lunceford, Count Jbassie, 
and Cao Calloway ; not to mention the 
more famous individual performers in 
ootn white and colored bands. Many 
orcnids go out to such units as the 
.Benny Goodman Sextet and other ex- 
ponents of esoteric jazz; for the im- 
provised type of swing is without 
doubt tne best of all when played by 
musicians of consummate skill. 

vvnne giving my opinions on popu- 
lar music I might as weil get rid of 
one of my pet aversions. In the past 
years there have been many adapta- 
tions of classical themes to swing 
styies ; this is an excellent thing when 
done with discretion, for it may in- 
spire interest in classical music among 
the followers of swing. Our Love, 
Moon Love, Chasing Rainbows, and 
Benny Goodman's Paganinni Varia- 
tions have been definite successes; 
however, the recent arrangements of 
the Tschaikowsky Piano Concerta No. 
1 are absolutely disgraceful in light 
of the previous success in adapting 
classical themes to modern music ; they 
reek with mediocrity, the words are 
nothing but sentimental blah, and all 
the arrangements are weak in the 
knees. Listen, if you will, to the class- 
ical rendition by any of the great ar- 
tists; note the power, the quality and 
depth of tone, and the "digitile facil- 
ity" shown by the pianist; then play 
a popular record of it and notice how 
undernourished and anemic it sounds. 
The lovers of classics and true swing 
have some consolation, for the modern 
meddler who re-arranged it only tam- 
pered with the first theme; we can 
remember most of the composition in 
its untouched form. We are also con- 
soled by the thought that no matter 
how hackneyed the popular version 
becomes the greatness of the compo- 
sition can never be spoiled as it was 
given to us in the original. Let us go 
all-out for true swing and the class- 
ics; but one hundred per cent against 
cheap examples and imitations of ei-

War In Europe 
Discussed By 

Conscientious Objector 
Gives View^ In Chapel 

The regular chapel period was de- 
voted without extension on Tuesday, 
November 18, to a brief lecture on 
Wartime Conditions in Europe by Mr. 
Paul N. Bowman, administrator of 
the Civilian Public Service Camp, a 
camp for conscientious objectors in 
Lagro, Indiana. 

Mr. Bowman served as relief ad- 
ministrator to France, Spain, and 
Finland under the Brethren Service 
Committee and the American Friends 
Service. This work brought him in 
contact with both sides of the Span- 
ish Civil War. He related how he saw 
the Republican forces receive Ameri- 
can planes which were captured by 
the Franco forces who were simultan- 
eously receiving indirectly boatloads 
of Chevrolet trucks from America to 
be used against the Republicans. This 
paradox . created quite an impression 
upon the speaker's mind. 

Mr. Bowman also saw pre-war Ger- 
many and France. He related how but 
weeks before the war, continental Eu- 
ropean students expressed anti-war 
sentiments. A week before the war 
a group of the students pledged them- 
selves to everlasting comradeship — a 
move reminiscent of World War when 
soldiers after a hard day's battle 
would sneak past their guards to an 
enemy trench nearby to chat, play 
cards and make merry with the en- 
emy. The next day all was war and 
it was not unusual to find oneself 
shooting the man with whom he so 
amiably chatted the previous night. 
Mr. Bowman returned to America up- 
w Italy's entrance into the present 

The lecturer presented no solutions 
for war. He presented first hand pie- 
ces of which some of the student

Surveys Facilities 
of Lebanon Valley 

The Service Bureau of the School 
of Education of the University of 
Pennsylvania is in the process of con- 
ducting a survey of educational facili- 
ties and programs at Lebanon Valley 
College. This move is a preliminary 
to an attempt to launch a drive about 
two years hence for funds to build a 
long-needed gymnasium and other ne- 
cessities on the campus. Dr. C. C. Mc- 
Cracken is in charge of the survey. 

This project was recommended by 
Dr. Lynch, President of Lebanon Val- 
ley College. It was heartily endorsed 
by the Board of Trustees who author- 
ized an immediate beginning to avoid 
delay. Dr. H. M. Imboden, an X-ray 
Specialist in New York City, is financ- 
ing the study. Dr. Imboden is an 
alumnus of Lebanon Valley College 
and is at present a Trustee at Large.

Famous Piano Team Plays 
In Lancaster Concert Dec. 2 

The second of Lancaster's Commun- 
ity Concerts for this season will be 
held on Tuesday, December 2, at 
8:15 p. m. at the McCaskey High 
School Auditorium with the sensation- 
al two-piano team of Malcolm and 
Godden as featured artists. Hailed on 
both sides of the Atlantic, Scott Mal- 
colm and Reginald Godden have scored 
triumphs in many important music 
centers of this continent and in Eng- 
land. Both of these rising stars were 
students of Ernest Seitz when they 
met. Neither remembers which pro- 
posed the new famous duo-piano team. 
From the beginning, they were inter- 
ested in arranging and took many of 
the organ works of Bach and adapted 
them to their own medium. 

In 1932 they made their New York 
debut in Town Hall and instantly re- 
ceived the highest praise from the 
press and public. They have been en- 
thusiastically received in London and 
have appeared in more than one hun- 
dred and twenty music centers in the 
United States, Canada, and the United 
Kingdom. Audiences are thrilled with 
the brilliance of performance, exacting 
rhythms, dazzling harmonics, and ex- 
traordinary technical prowess of this 
top-flight piano team of Malcolm and 


of Selective Service Draft Board num- 
ber three. The resignation was effec- 
tive at the board's meeting last ev- 
ening, November 19. 

Dr. Lynch wrote his letter of resig- 
nation October 29. It was received 
with regret by Dr. Lewis. In reply 
Dr. Lewis wrote: 

"I have your letter of October 29 
stating that because of exacting du- 
ties as president of Lebanon Valley 
College you are obliged to resign as a 
member of Local Board 3, Lebanon 

"We appreciate the fine service 
which you have rendered and regret 
the necessity of your resignation. I 
accept it, however, on behalf of the 
governor. . ." 

There was no discord in the Local 
Board Three. All votes were unani- 
mous. There was but one appeal. This 
was recognized by both Governor 
James and President Roosevelt. Dr. 
Lynch made his resignation because

Conserve Students 
Will Hold Formal 
On December 6 

The important social event of the 
season for the Conservatory students 
of Lebanon Valley College, the annu-

will be held this year on Saturday,

vania. The dance will feature the Blue 
Moon Orchestra of York.

more are expected to before December

The plans for the formal are rap- 
idly nearing completion due to the 
cooperation of the committee which is 
composed of two members of each 
Conservatory class. Following is the 
committee : Seniors — Harry Dren 
dall, chairman, and Virginia Good- 
man; Juniors — Walter Ebersole and 
Elizabeth Kerr; Sophomores — Frank- 
lin Unger and Dorothy Landis ; Fresh- 
men — James Brulatour and Sally Por- 
ter. Professor Rutledge is serving 
as faculty adviser. 

Philo-Delphians Turn 

Scavengers For Night 

The November 13th issue of La Vie 
Collegienne was already at press when 
the committee for the Delphian-Philo 
joint session remodeled their plans for 
Saturday night's social. Instead of 
the announced Uniform Ball, a scaven- 
ger hunt rounded out the two-society 
rush season. 

With Delphian Hall as their port of 
debarkation, scavengers issued forth 
to raid all corners of Annville, not to 
mention the available faculty mem- 
bers. Their bounty ran from earth- 
worms to model tests. Had there been 
any historical value connected with 
these treasures, Lebanon Valley Col- 
lege might have established a price- 
less museum. 

The outstanding scavengers of the 
evening were Charles Frantz, Evelyn 
Ling, Harry Miller and Alma Brandt 
who walked into a gathering of the 
'acuity (a made-to-order Bible 14 test 
and autographed eggs) and off with 
the prize. 


Last Tuesday evening the Wig and 
Buckle Club inaugurated the 1941-42 
dramatic season at Lebanon Valley 
with its production of Sir James Bar- 
rie's "What Every Woman Knows." 
Under the direction of of Dr. George 
Struble and with the acting of three 
veterans of the college stage, this 
rather lengthy play was carried suc- 
cessfully through the five scenes into 
which it was divided before an unus- 
ually large audience in Engle Hall. 

First honors for top performance 
must be shared by three — Betty Min- 
nich, Mary Jane Fulton, and Dennis 
Sheik. Betty Minnich gave such a 

spelndid characterization of Maggie, 
the girl 'wi'out nae charm', that it 
assumed the semblance of profession- 
alism. Her Scottish accent was quite 
genuine, and the lilting manner in 
which she delivered her lines was de- 
lightful. She was particularly out- 
standing in Scene II when Shand 
brings the news that he has been 
elected to Parliament and she jumps 
to her feet and pretends she is Shand 
making a speech in the House. Or- 
chids to Miss Minnich for chalking 
up her third straight success on L. 
V. C.'s stage. 

Mary Jane Fulton as the Comtesse 

de la Briere played her role to its full- 
est. Her performance was flawless, 
due to the fact that she had interpret- 
ed the role beforehand, previous to 
her coming to Lebanon Valley. Her 
familiarity with the French language 
helped her considerably in incorporat- 
ing that certain inflection into her 
voice that is typical of the manner 
in which the French speak. She man- 
aged to be tres charmante at all times 
and her mannerisms and gestures 
were quite apropos. 

The third of this trio of stellar per- 
formers is Dennis Sherk. As the stern,

Blue and White 
Easily Down 
Juniata, 18-0 

L. V. Overwhelms Indians In 
Grid Season Finals 

Coming back from western Pennsyl - 
vania with an 18-0 victory over Juni- 
ata under their belt, the Flying 
Dutchmen climaxed their 1941 season 
in a top-flight manner. Four wins, 
three losses and one tie were chalked 
up by Coach Frock's boys during the 
past gridiron campaign. The win on 
Saturday kept a twenty-two-year-old 
record intact against the Indians as 
the lads from Huntingdon have never 
been able to defeat a Lebanon Valley 
team since the series began in 1919. 
The Indians are coached by an alum- 
nrs of L. V. C, "Carty" Swartz, 
which makes the defeat more sting- 

Good team play sparked by brilliant 
individual performances at times fea- 
tured the play of the Blue and White 
during the past season and was the 
foremost reason for their continued 
success, although they not always 
came out on the long end of the score. 

"Tony" Ventresca turned in one of 
the best individual bits of ground- 
gaining seen all season in Saturday's 
game and climaxed it with two spec- 
tacular touchdown dashes of fifty-five 
and thirty yards respectively. "Tank" 
Beshore lived up to his name when he 
plowed through the Juniata line for 
a succession of first downs to place 
the ball in scoring position several

Final Fling Unites 
Four Societies 

Rushing season's grand finale will 
be staged on Saturday night at 8:00 
p.m. when the four societies, Delphian, 
Clio, Kalo, and Philo join forces to 
present their annual four joint session 
for the entertainment of the fresh- 
men. This event will be followed by 
the signing up for the respective so- 
cieties on Monday, November 24. 

With a night club theme as its cen- 
ter a stage presentation will be given 
in Engle Hall with each of the so- 
cieties being represented. Following 
the program there will be dancing in 
the gym to the varied recorded mus- 
ic of the "best bands in the country," 
as well as refreshments. 

The several attractions to be in- 
troduced by the master of ceremonies 
are to include an eleven piece dance 
band, a girls' trio, an accordion solo, 
impersonations, comedy acts, and a 
girls' dancing chorus. Unlike previous 
years the four societies are combining 
forces in putting on this program 
rather than competing with each oth- 
er to steal the show. 

In providing this program the four 
society presidents, Marjorie Holly, 
Betty Foster, Robert Dresel, and 
Joseph Carr, have collaborated. By the 
cooperation and teamwork they have 
endeavored to show the non-society 
members the advantages afforded by 
membership in a literary society.

Eve-Extension Notes 

Viola Fager, of Harrisburg, even- 
ing school student and L. V. C. Eve- 
Extension Representative in Harris- 
burg, attended an inter-racial break- 
fast at the Forster Street Y. M. C. A. 
on Sunday morning, November 16th. 
The program included discussions in- 
volving a system of better understand- 
ing between the races. Sponsored by 
a men's colored group, the ses- 
sion was attended by Christian and 
Jewish representatives of both races. 
. . . Much can be said in favor of the 
common grounds on which both reli- 
gious and racial groups may meet. 
Most of the major objectives are iden- 
tical; the end is clear to the major- 
ity, but the means to attain this end 
vary with each group. 

Along about mid-semester Eve-Ex- 
tension students seem to be devoting 
virtually all of their time to study 
and work. At any rate, there is little 
activity to report. Maybe they're 
building up for a terrific let-down ov- 
er the Thanksgiving holiday — Penn- 
sylvania style (the holiday, not the 
let-down) . 

Green from the Blotter 

Happiness is, for some of us, 
Like a tiny, sparkling icicle overhead ; 
We try endlessly to grasp it — 
Then, when at last, we softly touch 

its glistening being — 
It melts before our eyes, 
Leaving us only tears and a shivering 

coldness ; 

And, where sunshine once made rain- 
bows dance and play, 

There is but an icy memory to haunt 
our past desires. 

This is happiness. — Lem.

Thanksgiving Vacation 

Begins Wednesday 

While the nation divides itself be- 
tween a Rooseveltian and Pilgrim 
i hanksgiving, Lebanon Valley College 
enters its annual Thanksgiving va- 
cation around the traditional last 
Thursday in November. On Wednes- 
day, November 26, classes will be dis- 
nissed at 1:00 P. M. They will re- 
,onvene at 8:00 A. M., Monday, De- 
cember 1. The dormitory is officially 
open to the students on Sunday, No- 
vember 30. 

The doors of Engle Hall will be 
opened at 6:00 A. M., Wednesday, for 
.he early morning Thanksgiving wor- 
shippers. The Y. M. C. A. and Y. W. 
C. A. will as in previous years unite 
their efforts to conduct this service. 



Dr. Bailey's psych lab has really turned scientific this year and gone 
into research work with a vim. Some of the startling things they've under- 
mined demand publication — for instance, that Don Qlen won't go on a date 
with a movie star if Peggy isn't along. (Devotion -----) Dresel as a 
baby and Bachman as Hitler caused some excitement, but Nick Dorazio as 

a snake stole the show But say, what has Yeakle got that won't let 

her be put under ? ? ? 

The Frosh held a monopoly on the library the night before their lib- 
rary exam and snooped in every corner. To Tony goes the prize for the 

discovery of the evening — namely, that the basement is "down below" 

(Incidentally, the Frosh footballers were the real students of the evening, 
and asked more questions than the poor librarian could answer in a week — ) 

Conservites, take a tip from Hazel and Marvin — a nice brisk walk be- 
tween practices gives just the inspiration needed for concentrated work 


The hockey team has a mascot too! — A skunk named Odorono!!! 

Nickey Witmeyer and Ginny Stonecipher nearly had to thumb a ride to 

Albright Oops, Miss Henderson! That hockey team is too good to 

leave behind! 

And we hear that the grid squad had quite a nice trip — took over the 
P. R. R. to go to Huntingdon — then took over Hot Dog Frank's when they 

got back But how did the boys win the game without Hon Light 

there for an inspiration ? ? ? — Maybe wigs and dog teeth and stuff ??????? 

P. S. Marty was afraid Freddie (one of her "boys") would get train- 
sick, but apparently he's none the worse for the wear 


A few WHY'S 

Why was Clarkie so excited this week? (Ditto Jane Stabley over a 
phone call. Couldn't have been Les Smalley, could it? — Could it??) 
Why is Robbie called Thelma? 

Why has Ginny Kent acquired such a deep interest in week-ends off- 
campus ? ? 

Why was Dick Phillips so anxious about people digging up his old ac- 
quaintances ? 

Why does Peggy Boyd's piano lesson Friday at 5:30 grow into a week- 
end ? 


Faculty special:— Miss Gillespie once upon a time nearly got run over by 
a street car in Indianapolis while trying to put salt on a bird's tail!!! 

The main treat of being on the Jiggerboard is seeing the football play- 
ers walk nonchalantly in and suddenly out the door during meetings 

Oh— and ask Esther Z. what happens to little Frosh who were "somewhere 
when I should have been somewhere because I was signed out for some- 
where else — " 

WARNING: All Freshman boys and girls with secrets— beware of the 

GRAPEVINE extending from Room 308 to all channels of the campus -

President's Dinner 
Precedes Holiday 

On Tuesday, November 25, at 6:30 
p.m., the annual faculty dinner given 
by Dr. and Mrs. Clyde A. Lynch will 
be held at the Hershey Community 
Dining Room. As is the custom, the 
guests will attend the theatre follow- 
ing the meal. The president yearly 
invites his staff to attend this Thanks- 
giving event.

he felt that his duties as an educator

resolute politician, John Sltumd x, i 
had never smiler in his life, he turned 
in a fine performance. His stage p re . 
ence and enunciation left nothing (. 
be desired. Only once did he gi Ve aily 
indication that he had lost the o*, 
of his characterization and that was 
in the last scene. But he had a diffi 
cult role to portray and he is to be 

The efforts of the supporting Cast 
are to be commended. David Gockley 
as Mr. Venables conducted himself } n 
a properly spirited manner, but his 
vole did not give him much chance to 
show his acting ability. Louise Bog er 
was the young ingenue in the pl ay> 
playing Lady Sybil. She fulfilled the 
demands of her role only to the point 
of appearing chic and attractive, ft 
was evident that she was trying hard 
to project herself into the role, but 
seldom did she fully succeed in do- 
ing so. 

Charles Shelley as Alick Wylie, and 
Oscar Seyler and Jack McFadden as 
James and David, his sons, did as 
much as minor characters can do to- 
wards the success of a play. Shelley 
and Seyler in their initial perform- 
ances on the boards at L. V. C. showed 
promise. Shelley's make-up of side- 
burns and beard helped considerably 
in making him look like the paternal 
half of the Wylie faimly. At times 
his characterization was marred by 
the Dutch inflection in his voice. Sey- 
ler with his raspy voice and slow 
drawling delivery of lines added to 
the humor of the play, even though 
he did not make a bold attempt at 
burlesquing it once or twice when he 
made impromptu gestures. Jack Mc- 
Fadden as David appeared for the 
first time at Lebanon Valley in a full- 
length play, having confined his ef- 
forts previously to a one-act play. He 
did his best in a part which offered 
very little. Helen Bush and Luther 
Robinson were the maid and butler in 
the play. 

The production as a whole was at 
fault in two aspects. In the first place 
the sets were not what they might 
have been, although Charles Frantz 
and his staff worked industriously to 
make something presentable out o 
the existing paucity of stage materi- 
als. Good sets play a vital part m 
any production, and their importance 
should be stressed at L. V. C. The 
second point that presents itself lS 
that the little bit of prompting that 
was necessary was done too loudly- 
Every word that was said in twe 
course of prompting could be distinct 
ly heard in the last row of seats, a 
factor which detracts from any 

ence's enjoyment of a play. 
This reviewer suggests that 

idea of a new regime w

proved so effective in past camp uS a

ferry Miller, "Bad Boy" Hummel and 
Altaian would round out the starting 
. afield behind a line composed of 
Awards, Wolfe, Stine, Fidler, Neidig, 
i.p e e Wee" Miller, and Yannaccone. 
Schmaltzer reports that he has several 
capable reserves to take the field if 
necessary. Matala said, when inter- 
red last week, "There can be but 
one result of this thing next Thurs- 
day, and that is, overwhelming vic- 
tory f° r tne sophomores. Coach 
Schmaltzer is looking on his forward 
wall, composed practically of the same 
raen who lost a thrilling 12-6 con- 
test last fall to the present Junior 
Class, to stop the Frosh backs on their 
first attempt with the ball and then 
keep rocking them back the rest of 
the game. But in order not to give his 
boys the idea to think largely of de- 
fense, Schmaltzer was heard to say, 
"We want to get the ball and think of 
running. We will concentrate largely 
on offense. We want to go. You 
can't score if you don't have the ball, 
99 chances out of a 100." 
On the other side of the fence, 
'Coach Don" was unable to give a 
tentative line-up for the kickoff at the 
time that this sheet went to press. 
With over two full teams reporting, 
Staley and Smith hope to make val- 
uable use of the unlimited substitution 
rule. Staley's statement for the press 
is as follows: "We intend calling a 
meeting of the boys Monday and giv- 
ing them the plays at that time. Prac- 
tices on Tuesday and Wednesday will 
familiarize the men sufficiently for us 
to Put a team on the field that will go 
p us. We expect our backs to cut 
hose once they have ripped clear of 
we line. We intend telling our boys 
to get the ball and run."

Our Opponents 

While the Flying Dutchmen were 
closing a successful season by scalp- 
ing the Juniata Indians 18-0, most of 
our opponents also saw action. 

F. & M. bounced back after their 
scoreless tie with the Dutchmen to 
defeat Muhlenberg 15-7, coming 
from behind in the final quarter to 
upset the dope bucket. Blue Ridge 
completed a somewhat disastrous sea- 
son by losing their eighth (count 'em) 
game in a row to Randolph Macon by 
the score of 28-0. 

Bucknell, with Fahringer as the 
star, managed to score a 6-0 win over 
George Washington College and C. C. 
N. Y. finally came into their own by 
bouncing their city rivals, Brooklyn 
College around to the tune of 43-13.

happened. The earlier razzle-dazzle 
of the Albrightions failed to outwit 
the Valleyites, who began to hammer 
hard and consistently. In quick suc- 
cession, Snell, Wilt and D. Moyer 
zipped up a score of four, while the 
Blue and White defense mechanism 
cut off Albright's scoring attack com- 
pletely. The latter period demonstrat- 
ed some real hockey playing on the 
part of the Valley team. 

Vi Snell and Martha Wilt played a 
bang up game on the forward line, 
while Johnnie Johns wielded a mean 
stick in the backfleld. Hockey leader 
Klopp sustained a knee injury early 
in the game, but rallied enough to 
be sent into the game again. In spite 
of her handicap she turned in one of 
her best performances of the year. 

The team was entertained by the 
Albright Women's Athletic Associa- 
tion at a dinner, followed by an in- 
formal dance. The girls did a neat 
job on the game, and therefore de- 
serve a rousing cheer from the stu- 
dent body. 


In the last game of the 1941 season for the Flying Dutchmen at Hunt- 
ingdon last week we saw a travelling outfit of 20 L. V. C. gridders go to 
work in the first period and kept rolling to pay-dirt all afternoon. On sev- 
eral occasions the Valley drive stopped short of the T. D. territory when two 
costly fumbles, one on the 2-yard line, two incomplete passes and a deter- 
mined forward wall of the Indians prevented the Blue and White from scor- 
ing at least four more times. This statement is supported by statistics that 
reveal that the Frockmen rolled up nearly 300 yards from scrimmage. 

Of the six seniors who played their last bit of collegiate ball, only two 
were named on the starting eleven. Staley, acting captain in the last two 
games, and Kubisen started at end for the last time. Captain Shay and 
Smith were sidelined with injuries while Swope and Carr gave way to 
Wasileski and Staley respectively. 

Staley turned in a brilliant game by recovering two Juniata fumbles 
and catching several passes from the Valley backs for first downs. Don. 
played a bang up game on defense with his vicious charge from one end of 
the L. V. C. five man line and was found down field under punts all after- 
noon. His work on offense was of great aid in opening the holes for the 
Valley ball runners to slice into. Kubisen on the left end of the line came 
in for his share of laurel's with a neat catch over the line in the first period 
which set up the first Valley score and then continued to harass the Indian 
backs with his bone-crushing tackles from his oflf-the-line position of Coach 
Frock's staggered defense. Steve personally halted the Juniata attack in 
the waning minutes when he broke through to spill the home team's ball 
carrier for a 10-yard loss on an attempted double reverse. 

Ralph Shay was the first of the four remaining seniors to see action 
as he took the field to replace Hall soon after the first tally. Receiving a 
nasty ankle sprain in the Blue Ridge fuss and forced to the sidelines in 
the F. & M. affair with another twist after only a minute's action in the 
third quarter, Shay played in every quarter of the tussle with Juniata as his 
leg held up enough to permit him to alternate at either guard job in his last 
grid contest. His chief contributions to the Valley cause was the recovery 
of an Indian fumble that set up a Dutchmen drive that fell just short of the 
goal line, and a driving game on defense that saw him refuse to surrender 
an inch on defense and crash through the line to pull ball carriers down for 

Joe Carr played good ball in every moment in which he sang his swan 
song against the up-state team. Carr grabbed two passes in the last period 
to rack up two first downs that netted the Valley 30 yards and placed the 
ball deep in Juniata territory. As the lanky end attempted to clinch the 
drive to T. D. land, the Indian defenders ganged up on Carr as he leaped 
into the air to pull the ball from the ozone. When the home team took the 
ball he proved his worth by plugging up his side of the line. 

Smith and Swope saw only limited action in the fray but played fight- 
ing games in their last opportunity to wear the Blue and White. With a 
bad ankle that has refused to respond to treatment in the last two weeks, 
Smith was kept from the game most of the time by Coach Frock. Swope, 
however, came into the fray in the second and fourth quarters for brief 
appearances and played his usual steady game in backing up the center of 
the Dutchmen line. His true passes from the position were invaluable in 
letting the Valley backs take off on big gains. 

Juniors Prepare To 
Meet Visitors Of 
Soj>h<Frosh Tussle 

Hold Lengthy Practices 
And Blackboard Meetings 

Though interest in campus sport 
news appears to be centered this week 
cn the Frosh-Soph inter-class game 
scheduled for this afternoon, most of 
cur followers are looking ahead to 
r.txt Tuesday when a group of ap- 
proximately 16 junior gridders will 
take on the winners of today's contest. 
The challenge was thrown out to the 
under-classmen several weeks ago and 
both the sophomore and freshmen 
elevens agreed to meet the third year 
men next week if they should emerge 
victorious from today's fray. 

Coaches Shay, Carr, and Eminhizer 
have been conaucting several chalk- 
beard talks in the past three weeks to 
prepare their aggregation for the ball 
game due to come off just before the 
Thanksgiving vacation. The mentors 
of the junior outfit have scheduled 
practices for every day this week 
oxcept today when the team was ad- 
vised to take a walk to the field to 
witness the conflict going on there. 
Carr said, "The boys could gain as 
much by watching this tussle in pre- 
paration for next week's game as in 
two or three day's practices on their 
Twn stuff." 

The juniors were the victors in 
last year's game when Dick Beckner 
and several of his cohorts banded to- 
gether in the second half to overcome 
a 6-0 lead posted by the present sopho- 
more class at half-time. The rally net- 
ted the juniors two touchdowns, one 
each in the third and fourth periods. 
Fritsche, Croll, Ebersole, Wilkialis, 
and Beckner were the outstanding 
performers in the game and it is ex- 
pected that they will bear the brunt 
of the attacks against which ever of 
the underclassmen teams comes out on 
top this week. 

Head-coach Shay announced a ten- 
tative starting line-up yesterday com- 
posed of Meyers and Bartley on the 
wings, Ness at the left tackle job and 
either Rodgers or Hocker at the right 
tackle slot, Ebersole and Croll at the 
guard posts, and Wilkailis over the 
ball. Beckner, Fritsche and Uhrich 
are certain starters in the backfield 
with the fourth running job going to 
Silliman or Little, depending on 
whether the juniors kick-off to their 
opponents or wait on the 50 yard-line 
to receive.

Penn Hall Teams 
Beat Valley Squads 

Visitors Down Honor Squad 
And Frosh Hockey Team 

Monday afternoon witnessed a 
stocky crowd of long-experienced 
hockey players from Penn Hall invad- 
ing Lebanon Valley's field to compete 
with the Blue and White girls who 
went down in defeat. 

There were two games scheduled on 
the afternoon's ticket. The earlier one 
saw Penn Hall's younger fry meeting 
the Valley yearlings. Although the 
Penn Hallers gained advantage in ex- 
perience, they were met with some 
keen opposition from the 45ers of 
L. V. C. whose defeat was by a nar- 
row margin of one point as the final 
score was 1-0. 
' Among the forward line players, 
Dottie Moyer turned in a star per- 
formance, while Heister held down 
the center halfback position. The 
army's contribution to L. V., Higby by 
name, makes an excellent goalie for 
the first year girls. 

In the second battle of the after- 
noon, Penn Hall varsity met Lebanon 
Valley's Honor squad and downed the 
Blue and White aggregation to the 
tune of 2-1. Martha Wilt accounted 
for the Valley's lone goal. She was 
well backed by the rest of the for- 
ward line, while Pete Geyer came 
through with brilliant playing.

Continued from Page 1 

Following Leeper's poor kick in the 
first period, "Tony" took the ball on 
a quick-opening play and closely fol- 
lowing his interference through the 
Indian forward wall, reached the sec- 
ondary, whom he outraced to the 
broad stripe. A lineman charged thru 
to block Matala's attempted place- 

The second L. V. score came as a 
result of a fifty-six yard march which 
began late in the first canto and 
reached pay dirt soon after the second 
quarter began. A twenty-one yard 
punt return by Maley set off the of- 
fensive power of the Blue and White 
team. This was followed by a quick 
pass to "Big Don" Staley who carried 
it to the Juniata 41 and then "Tank" 
lugged the leather to the thirty yard 
stripe as the chukker closed. 

Ventresca circled left end for twen- 
ty yards when he reentered the game, 
which he followed by a six-yard 
plunge to place the oval on the four. 
Maley scored standing up through the 
weak side on a "quarterback sneak." 
As L.V.C, was detected holding on the 

first try for point after touchdown, 
they were penalized fifteen yards to 
the seventeen-yard line. Matala's sec- 
ond kick was wide of the uprights and 
Lebanon Valley led 12-0 at half time. 

Only two plays after the kickoff for 
the second half were required to mark 
up another tally. Dorazio's thirty-yard 
return of the kickoff brought the ball 
to the Lebanon Valley 45. From here 
Ventresca ripped off twenty-five yards 
through tackle and then on the iden- 
tical quick-opening play which scored 
the first counter he outwitted the sec- 
ondary to cross the last line again. 
The placement was wide by inches to 
wind up the scoring of the day. 

Numerous substitutions were made 
up by Coach Frock in order to give 
every one of the twenty players who 
made the trip to Huntingdon a chance 
to see action. Costly fumbles by these 
reserves in scoring territory kept the 
score down to this low figure. 

Acting Captain Don Staley recov- 
ered two fumbles in addition to smash- 
ing the Indian offense to bits when it 
came his direction. Ralph Shay, al- 
though injured, gave the lads in the 
center of the Juniata line a fight for 
their money as he broke up many 
plays directed his way. Joe Carr 

snagged quite a few passes to regis 
ter a number of first downs f° r tlie 
Blue and White, while "Smitty" a" d 
"Kid" Swope performed comniendaby 
in their positions. "Steve" ^u^ 1 
was terror on the defense as time 
ter time he broke up end runs far 
hind the line. ^ 

Fourteen first downs were amass 
by the "Flying Dutchmen" in flh "j 
mg up close to three hundred J & 

from scrimmage, while the J un 
team was unable to mark up one

Freshmen Bow 
To Soph Team 
in 20*0 Victory 

Traditional Battle Lets 
Sophs Avenge Tug 

A better coached and more exper- 
ienced sophomore team had little dif- 
ficulty in defeating the freshman 
eleven 20-0 in the traditional inter- 
class battle played on the college ath- 
letic field several weeks ago. Led by 
Kern, Smith, Altman and Hummel the 
sophomores had little trouble in slip- 
ping over three 6 pointers and tack- 
ing on two conversions as they racked 
up ten first downs to the first year 
men's two. 

Contrary to what the statistics of 
the game might show the contest was 
a well fought battle. The plucky and 
scrappy defensive play of the deter- 
mined frosh kept the sophomore ag- 
gregation in check throughout most 
of the game. 

At game time the Maple Street 
Stadium was not what might be call- 
ed overcrowded due to the inclement 
weather. But just as the time ap- 
proached for the opening whistle there 
was a change for the better in the at- 
mospheric conditions and a host of 
spectators joined those already gath- 
ered along the sidelines. 

The sophomores won the toss, elect- 
ing to kick defending the south goal- 
line. Kern kicked to Herb on the 35 
who brought the ball up to the 38 be- 
fore he was smothered under by a 
mass of tacklers. Good, Delduco and 
Rumpf advanced the ball to the 44, 
but failure to make the necessary 
yardage gave the ball to the sophs. 
Kern gained 5 at the right and Alt- 
Man added 16 to make it a first down. 
A Pass intercepted by Lloyd gave the 
fl '°sh a first down on their own 20. 
Delduco gained 4 but the frosh lost

Letter men Elect 
Guard As Captain 

At a meeting of the lettermen of 
the 1941 Valley football team this 
week, Hank Schmaltzer was chosen 
to lead his team-mates next fall as 
captain of the Lebanon Valley grid 
machine. Schmaltzer, a junior, has 
earned his letter in football for three 
years by his sterling play along the

first year with the Blue and White 
but was assigned a tackle position in 
his sophomore year. In his freshman

can team. Just recently he was given 
the same recognition on the Penna.

Debators Organize 
For 1941-42 Season 

On Friday afternoon of November 
21 the initial meeting of the Men's 
Debate Team was held under the dir- 
ection of the debate coach. Dr. Stine. 
Election of officers was the first busi- 
ness to be dispensed with, the results 
being the election of Donald Bartley 
as president, Joe Carr vice president, 
and Peter Olenchuk as secretary. A 
correspondence committee consisting 
of Robert Whisler, Oscar Seyler, 
Charles McConnell, and Peter Olen- 
chuk was also selected. 

The team intends to function more 
on the basis of a club this season, with 
regularly scheduled meetings on the 
second and fourth Tuesdays of each 
month at 4:30 o'clock in Philo Hall. 
At these meetings emphasis is to be 
phued upon getting a sounder basis 
for argument and debate styles. De- 
bates among different teams of the 
club and also between the women's 
teams are to be included in these club 

Juniors Cast Actors 
For Mystery Play 

The play committee for the Junior 
Class has selected for the class' an- 
nual production a mystery play en- 
titled Through the Night by Florence 
Ryerson and Colin Clements. Copies 
of the play have been ordered and Dr. 
George Struble, dramatics director at 
Lebanon Valley, expects to have his 
first rehearsal tomorrow evening. 
Ironically enough, the play was to 
have been presented on Friday Dec- 
ember 12, but due to the delayed open- 
ing of school last fall and unexpected 
difficulty in choosing a play, the play 
has been scheduled to be given in the 
second week in January. 

A surprising number of juniors 
were present at the tryouts which 
were held Tuesday afternoon and even- 
ing in Philo Hall. Dr. Struble has cast 
the ten characters in the play, and 
they are as follows :

Warrant Tips 
For Students 

A Message to the Students 
of Lebanon Valley College 

By President Clyde A. Lynch 

The Editor of the LA VIE COLLE- 
GIENNE has requested me to prepare 
an article dealing with the status of 
the student in this hour of national 
emergency; consequently, I am mak- 
ing a number of suggestions to help 
you make your best possible contribu- 
tion to your nation. 1 claim no intalli- 
oiiity of judgment; but, with sincer- 
ity of purpose and a desire to be help- 
ful, I humbly submit the following 
counsel for your consideration. 

1. Be resigned to the fact of war. 
T,he uncertainty of the precious 
months was most devitalizing. But 
now that which we feared might hap- 
pen has actually occurred; and the 
treacherous and deadly attack of Ja- 
pan on Hawaii has had an electrifying 
effect on every loyal American citi- 
zen. It is better to know the direction 
we are taking, with all the sacrifices 
of life and property involved, than it 
is to fritter away our time and en- 
ergy in a state of indecision, where 
vague anticipations of trouble breed 
despondency and fear. We are really 
in a major war now; we know we are 
in it; and we accept it not only as the 
inevitable consequence of a chain of 
events largely beyond our individual 
control, but as a golden opportunity 
to respond to our country's call in a 
manner and at a time calculated to 
yield our maximum service. The pe- 
riod of discussion and debate is over — 
the time for action is here, and it is 
our patriotic duty to act intelligently. 

2. Be loyal. Saboteurs and fifth 
columnists, with their destructive and 
subversive activities, are abroad in the 
land. While it is not likely that any 
student or faculty member would will- 
ingly give comfort or aid to the en- 
emy, there will be temptations to talk 
and act injudiciously and to meet cries 
of alarm with the comment, "propa- 
ganda." The writer well remembers 
how a certain chapel speaker's timely 
warning several years ago was dis- 
missed by the students with the sneer- 
ing comment of one word — "propagan- 
da." The worst kind of propaganda 
to which we have been subjected has 
been the charge that everything is 
propaganda. Without hysteria or 
witch-hunting crusades we must be 
alert to report persons of suspicious

NewPresident Starts 
Clio Dance Plans 

January 17 is the date for Clio's an- 
niversary dance and the place will 
probably be the ballroom of the Her- 
shey Hotel. All this has already been 
decided since Rae Sechrist was elect- 
ed just one week ago by the society 
to organize their dance. 

Rae is a senior in the conservatory. 
For three years she has been a mem- 
ber of both the glee club and the 
girls' band. Last semester she was 
vice-president of Clio and this year 
she also presides as president of the 
Eclectic Club. 

On Tues. night Clio held an infor- 
mal initiation of its new members and 
after the service a regular meeting 
was held and the complete commit- 
tees for the dance were announced. 
The society is experiencing some dif- 
ficulties in securing satisfactory fa- 
vors because of the present shortage 
of such merchandise. However, the 
rest of the plans for the dance are 
already moving very smoothly. 

Dorm Students 
Await Yule Feast 

North Hall will once again be the 
scene of the annual Christmas banq- 
uet on December 18, at 6 p.m. when

"fixins" the meal will be capped by a 
dance in the alumni gymnasium. 

Arrangements are in charge of the 
W. S. G. A. which promises Eddie's 
best in menus, the gayest of Christ- 
mas decorations and the best in clev- 
er and witty after-dinner speakers.

A Star May Fall . . 

—1939, 1940, 1941— More sheep ! No 
sleep! — 1942— Blast those airplanes! 
—Can't sleep! Eat? No.— Read? Noth- 
ing worth while. — Have a try at the 
radio? Short wave ought to be good 
now. — Music, that's it. Talking 'Id 
just waken me more. — What a bed! 
Can't take it any longer! 

Slipping into a warm bathrobe, the 
man walked toward the large bay win- 
dows, flung them open, and strode out 
on the balcony. All the forest he sur- 
veyed seemed as silent as a recently 
hushed child. Only an occasional beam 
from a mammoth beacon hinted that 
life existed about him. 

— That bright star in the west is 
my star. Yes, I must see my astrologer 
tomorrow. He can advise me what 
shall be my next act. — 

In the next moment he started, his 
hands clenched, a feeling that his 
whole body force was falling to his 
feet — His star had fallen! — panic 
made his temples ache. — 

— Where was it? How was it cut 
loose? What caused it to fall? — . . . 
"And lo, a star appeared in the east" 
. . . spoke a voice which came from 
everywhere and nowhere. 

Still rooted to the balcony the man 
moved his eyes to the east. There in 
the fading darkness of night a bright 
star glowed. 

. . . "Fear not; for behold I bring 
you good tidings of great joy, which 
shall be to all people.". . . 

The new white beacon monopolized

Eve-Extension Notes 

With Thanksgiving off the calendar 
for another year, Eve-extension stu- 
dents are giving full attention to their 
school work. Holiday seasons, espec- 
ially when big meals aie to be served 
to a congregated family, are a spec- 
iality with evening school student Sara 
Curry, of JTummelstown. One of Mrs. 
Curry's most vexing problems, when 
the family gathers, is the non-compat- 
ibiity of domestic pets — dogs, to be 
specific — from various households of 
the tribe. 

It's a new job for Jane Kreider of

muttered, "the radio is turned on but 
he isn't here. Ah, the balcony!" 

Raising one arm the man stopped 
them as they rushed toward him. The 
raised arm slowly pointed to the west. 
"My star fell," fell like a bomb in the 
growing dawn. Then the arm turned 
to the east. "That star is the one of a 
Saviour and he is bringing peace to 
earth," was emphasized by the ensu- 
ing silence. 

"I must go to bed, now. Our 
stars do not lie, My work is over. 
There is to be peace for all they say." 

Dawn now sent a fresh glow over 
the horizon but the star still studded 

As the man slowly crawled into bed 
the radio announcer's voice cut into

And then the chime-accompanied

gain the night before. He smiled in

At last even he had peace and rest. —

Students of clefs and measures escaped from the "Monkey House" Sat-

melodies of the Blue Mooners made them wild with delight and danced them 
into a state of complete but contented exhaustion - - - - To start off the 
evening (but not at the beginning), Smith-Tippery and Seiverling-Gruber 
offer the mention for that unknown quantity: the late entrance. (But, sad to 
say, they were completely outshone by some more dramatic alumni who 
dared to enter when the others were at the dessert stage.) 

----- The service must be commended. Indeed, the waiters were SO 
numerous and SO helpful that — well, Sally Porter, for instance, stood all she 
could, then said "Please move!" to one of the stand-bys. On the other hand, 
Dick Phillips held a contest to see whether he could drink the water faster 
than the waiter could pour it. (And he could.) Harry Miller offered dan- 
gerous competition in this game, however, by consuming ELEVEN glasses 
of H20. Oh 

After innumerable futile attempts to pass something and finding; it 
disappear into the attendant's command, some people asked permission be-

another game, though — ) ----- Ginny Kent's off-campus Vernon insisted 
that the celery was a tree trunk and planted his in a glass of water to watch

La Vie Goes to ff Arsenic and Old Lace 

By David Shaner 

It was "Standing Room Only" at 
the Hershey Community Theatre, 
Wednesday evening, December 3, as 
the curtain rose on Arsenic and Old 
Lace, presented by a touring cast of 
such stage notables as Laura Hope 
Crews, Eric Von Stroheim, Jack Whit- 
ing, Effie Shannon, and Forrest Orr. 
Written by Joseph Kesselring and pro- 
duced by Howard Lindsay and Russell 
Crouse, this side-splitting murder 
farce is at present an established 
Broadway success. 

The capacity audience at the Her- 
shey Theatre spent a hilariously funny 
yet terrorizing evening in the sedate 
Brooklyn home of the Brewster sis- 
ters, two charming old maids whose 
hobby is dispensing poisoned elder- 
berry wine to a succession of lonely 

and homeless old men who answer 
their rcqm-for-rent ad. Occupying the 
residence with them is their nephew, 
Teddy Brewster, who believes he is 
Teddy Roosevelt charging up San 
Juan Hill. A corpse in a window seat 
is accidently discovered by Mortimer 
Brewster while visiting his two lov- 
able old aunts. The aunts cheerfully 
confess murder to Nephew Mortimer 
and admit they have buried eleven 
men as an act of mercy to spare them 
lonely lives. Another murder is at- 
tempted when lonely old Mr. Gibbs 
comes to the Brewster home. Mortimer 
stops him just in time from drinking 
the poisoned elderberry wine, much to 
his aunts' annoyance. Another homi- 
cidal Brewster, Nephew Jonathan,

Don Bartley — I think it's a great 
idea. The men in the service lack 
wholesome entertainment, and this is 
a swell way to give it to them. Keep 
them dancing! 

Don Staley— I think that this is a 
very good idea. After all, what more 
could the U. S. army ask for than 
to have such a refined group of young 
ladies at their dance. 

Bill Gollam— It is an excellent idea 
because of the fact that the boys are 
working under a regular routine o 
army life, which puts a strain on their 
physical makeup, and this is a go° d 
way to relax. 

George Smith— This is a very g° od 
policy, considering that we ourselves

Two Victories Credited 

To Girls' Honor Team 

Frock Schedules 
Basketball Season 

Athletic Director Jerome W. Frock 
released the varsity basketball sched- 
ule for 1941-42 this week. The games 
scheduled are mainly those with teams 
representing member colleges of the 
Eastern Penna. Collegiate Basketball 
League. Only one non-league game 
has been secured. That contest is be- 
tween Lebanon Valley and Dickinson 
College at Carlisle on January 14. 
Each of the member teams of the 
league are to be played on two occa- 
sions. The first game between teams 
in the league is scheduled at Reading 
with Albright playing host to the 
Bucknell Bisons. 

Gettysburg is to be met next Wed- 
nesday, December 17, at York in a 
charity game sponsored by the Ex- 
change Club of York to raise money 
for the local infantile paralysis fund. 
In other years several non-league 
games have been arranged, but it ap- 
pears at present that the schedule for 
the season will include 14 games. 
There is a possibility that a return 
match may be arranged with the Dick- 
inson outfit. 

The first league game is planned 
f or January 7th with Ursinus at Col- 
fegeville. Franklin and Marshall, 
Muhlenberg, Bucknell, and Albright 
Wl H be played in turn and the second 
round begun, with the schedule being 
completed with the Lions of Albright 
at Lebanon on March 4th. All home 
§ a mes of the Dutchmen will be played 
°n the spacious gymnasium at the Leb- 
an °n Senior High School. These 
S a mes will be begun after the usual 
P^iirninary game between the Valley 
darlings and a visiting aggregation. 

T he schedule is as follows:

Penn Hall Defeat Only 
Loss Suffered By Frosh 

Although the final hockey game 
was held before Thanksgiving, this 
is the first opportunity we've had 
to view the season as a whole. In 
terms of final scores, the Honor 
Squad broke even, winning two 
games, losing two and tying one. In 
the season's opener, played with Ship- 
pensburg on the latter's campus, both 
teams were cautious, playing defen- 
sively with a 0-0 result. 

The second and third games of the 
season were played on the Hockey 
Play Day. In the earlier game, Leb- 
non Valley defeated Susquehanna by 
a one-point margin, the score being 
2-1. In the afternoon's game, the Blue 
and Vvhite team was humbled by Ced- 
ar Crest to the tune of 5-1. 

The next game scheduled was play- 
ed at Albright, where that school met 
a 4-2 defeat at the hands of our own 
team. The final game brought the 
team back to the home field where a 
strong Penn Hall aggregation made 
four goals to Lebanon Valley's one. 

Martha Wilt accounted for five of 
the eight goals made this season, 
while Vi Snell followed with two to 
her credit. Dotty Moyer, promising 
Freshman player, rounded out the 
season's score with her contribution of 
one goal. 

The Freshman team this year, exist- 
ing as a separate organization with 
its own schedule of games with other 
schools, is practically an innovation 
on campus, as there were more hock- 
ey enthusiasts in the class of '45 than 
in any previous classes entering L. V. 
C. The yearlings' team has a better 
record than the Honor squad, as they 
won two of the three games schedul- 

The first competition of the season 
was held on the home field with Ship- 
pensburg Frosh as the opposition. Al- 
though handicapped by a cold, driving 
downpour, both teams put up a good 
fight to the very end when the score 
was 3-2 in the Valley's favor. 

The season's second game brought 
the Myerstown High School girls to 
our campus, only for our girls to mete 
out to them a 5-1 defeat. The final 
game played with Penn Hall, was also 
held on home territory, but the Blue 
and White yearlings received their 
first taste of defeat, as Penn Hall won 
by a 1-0 score. 

Virginia Stonecipher put the ball in 
the cage four times out of the eight 
times it reached its mark. Dotty Moy- 
er, Jeanne Waller, Dotty Campbell, 
and Esther Zimmerman each contrib- 
uted one counter to the season's final 

Although the squad loses four 
strong members by graduation, the 
chances for an unusually successful 
season in '42 are really promising, as 
this past autumn witnessed develop- 
ment of shrewd and skillful hockey 

Hockey Squad 
To Lose Four 
Next June 

Graduation Takes Quartet 
Of Veteran Performers 

Mary Louise Clark, much better 
known as "Clarkie," has been holding 
a position in the backfield of the 
hockey squad since her first year on 
Lebanon Valley campus. Clarkie is 
the sole North Hall senior who has 
stuck to her guns on the hockey field. 
In addition to her prowess as a hard 
hitter, Clarkie has a number of other 
activities to her credit; she is an ar- 
dent supporter of all Clio undertak- 
ings, has been an active member of 
the Biology Club, finds keen enjoy- 
ment in dramatic pursuits. In addi- 
tion to this, she finds adequate time 
to spend in the Biology Lab, working 
hard at her major in the curriculum. 

Phoebe Geyer is West Hall's contri- 
bution to the hockey squad, from the 
last-year girls who make their abode 
on that corner. "Pete" has held the 
fullback position with unflagging en- 
thusiasm and consistency. However, 
this is not the limit of her activities, 
as she is devoted to basketball and 
tennis in the sports line, as well as to 
the more aesthetic pursuits, such as 
Wig and Buckle, Green Blotter Club. 
Pete is also a member of the Life 
Work Recruits, and serves as presi- 
dent of the Y. W. C. A. She also finds 
time to lend their talents to Delphian 

Jane Stabley of South Hall is num- 
bered among the stars of Lebanon 
Valley's hockey roll call. Jane's ath- 
letic ability has also been manifested 
on the basketball and tennis courts. 
Along with her work as a history ma- 
jor she has developed a keen interest 
m International Relations Club events. 
Socially, Janie is inclined the Del- 
phian way, and, incidentally she holds 
her own when it comes to the appear- 
ance discussion — she looks equally at- 
tractive in basketball shorts or even- 
ing clothes. Her smooth tan is the 
envy of the majority of Lebanon Val- 
ley's fair sex. Her efficient playing 
of the backfield position will cause 
Janie's name to be recorded in L. V. 
C.'s hockey annals. 

Viola Snell of New Cumberland and 
South Hall, started her hockey ca- 
reer as a forward, playing various 
positions, but holding mainly to the 
wings. "Vi," as an English major, has 
displayed her talents in a field entire- 
ly apart from athletics. She is pursu- 
ing further extracurriculum in her 
activities in Delphian Literary Soci- 
ety, in which she has held offices. Vi 
also serves as hall president of her 
home dormitory, fulfilling her duties 
as such, with her usual competency. 
Although she seems enthusiastic about 
her campus activities, Vi's main inter- 
est is no longer around here. However, 
she plays a fast game of hockey, and 
that is what we are interested in at 
this juncture. 



playing on the part of Johns, Klopp, 
and Carey of the class of '43. Haver- 
stock and Bernhard from the '44 crowd 
will help to maintain a backbone for 
next year's team, and the future 
sophomores' praises have already 
been sung. Next year should see big 
things from a group as promising as 
this one, but only time will tell! 

Last but not least, the hockey lead- 
er deserves a verbal Oscar for her 
consistent work in keeping- the girls 
playing hard. Nice going, Mary El- 
len Klopp — we'll expect to hear more 
from you! 

Basketball League Begun Last 
Week By Day Students 

Six Upperclassmen Chosen 
To Lead Inter-Mural 

The Men's Day Student Basketball 
League was reorganized under the 
supervision of "Mike" Intrieri before 
Thanksgiving vacation with six upper- 
classmen being chosen as captains of 
the various teams. The teams and 
their captains are as follows: Botch 
Bros, "Bob" Uhrich; Midgets, "Ted" 
Youse; Green Hornets, "Jabber" 
Shay; Mighty Atoms, "Steve" Metro; 
Indians, "Lefty" Little, and Tigers, 
"Bud" (Two-way) Bcltz. "Mike" has 
succeeded in curbing the "axing" for 
which the league was famous by the 
expert officiating of the games. 

"Russ" Aurentz and John Yoder 
starred as the Botch Bros, gained a 
36 to 23 triumph over "Ted" Youse's 
Midgets although the captain of the 
defeated five led the point-getters in 
the initial league fracas with fifteen 

The Green Hornets stung the 
Mighty Atoms as "Jabber" Shay ac- 
counted for fourteen of the points 
garnered in the 19-16 victory. "Ken" 
Gerhart was the "Mightiest" of the 
Atoms in throwing up three baskets. 

"Lefty's" Indians scalped the Tigers 
unmercifully on Friday as the highest 
score of the season was rung up. It 
was a thrilling scoring fray with 
Fake of the Indians racking up twen- 
ty-four counters to lead the Day Stu- 
dents in this department. Captain

"Bud" (Two-way) Boltz provided the 
spectators with a little comedy when 
he dribbled half the length of the 
court to leap high into the air and 
bounce the sphere off the bankboard 
into the Indians' basket early in the 
third quarter amid the frantic shouts 
from his team-mates. 

This method of organization has al- 
lowed more day students to partici- 
pate in the games than was formerly 
possible by the class teams. The play 
in this early part of the schedule has 
been relatively ragged but shows 
promises of becoming comparable to 
that in a fast league as the players 
adjust themselves to this style of 

W. A. A. Plans Hike 

For December 15 

Leaving North Hall at 4:30 p. m. on 
Monday, December 15, the W. A. A. 
will lead all women students on a 
Christmas hike. The hikers will be 
back before dinner. A special theme 
in the holiday spirit will add interest 
for the walkers. 

Basketball Team 
To Meet G<burg 

Although the current Lebanon Val- 
ley basketball team will not swing in- 
to play in the Eastern Penna. Collegi- 
ate Basketball League until January 
7 when the Dutchmen travel to Col- 
legeville to tangle with the Ursinus 
Bears, a non-league game has been 
scheduled to be played in York next 
Wednesday, December 17. 

This game has been arranged by 
the Exchange Club of York along with 
its efforts to raise money for the in- 
fantile paralysis fund sponsored by 
the club in that city. Athletic Direc- 
tor Frock had received communica- 
tions from the Committee Chairman 
some time ago and immediately sent 
his answer of acceptance and willing- 
ness to aid in the worthy drive. Coach 
Frock also released the schedule of 
the varsity and freshman basketball 
teams which will be printed next 
week. At present two games have 
been scheduled between Lebanon Val- 
ley and teams representing the other 
members of the league. These col- 
leges are Ursinus, Franklin and Mar- 
shall, Bucknell, Muhlenberg, Gettys- 
burg, and Albright. One game has 
also been arranged between Dickinson 
and the Dutchmen. 

Six Volley Ball 
Teams Begin Play 

A dav student volley ball league has 
been organized in conjunction with 
the newly organized basketball league. 
The six teams retain their basketball 
sobriquets, but are led by separate 
captains. The volley ball league got 
a new way with Hall acting as cap- 
tain of the Green Hornets; Patschke 
captaining the Mighty Atoms; Hum- 
mel the Botch Brothers; Youse the 
Midgets; Morey the Tigers; and Re- 
ber the Indians. The games are play- 
ed every Monday, Wednesday and 
Friday between halves of the basket- 
ball games. In the first game of the 
current season the Indians won out 
over the Tigers 15 to 10 with Rhine- 
hold serving them up for the winners 
and Lipsitz for the losers. In the game 
between the Midgets and Botch Broth- 
ers the botchers emerged on the long 
end of a 15 to 12 count. Hummel 
served for the winners, while Light 
worked hard for the losers. Yoder 
showed much promise as a spiker in 
this victory. In the final game of the 
week, the Mighty Atoms led by Pat- 
schke trimmed the Green Hornets 15 
to 11, Horner doing the serving for 
the losers. It is too early in the sea- 
son to venture any predictions, but it 
seems from here that the Mighty 
Atoms and the Hornets will bear

drops in unexpectedly after escaping 
from an asylum. A new corpse credit- 
ed to Jonathan is smuggled in by him 
and his friend, Dr. Einstein, and they 
hide it in the window seat. Aunt Abby 
disowns the new corpse. Her own vic- 
tim now awaits burial in the cellar. 
In funeral dress the aunts plan to 
bury their victim in the cellar aided 
by Teddy who thinks he is digging 
the Panama Canal. Murder by torture 
is planned for Mortimer because he 
threatens to tell the police about Jona- 
than's corpse. While Mortimer is 
bound in a chair, Jonathan heats the 
doctor's surgical instruments in pre- 
paration for the job. Mortimer is res- 
cued by a literary cop who keeps him 
bound and gagged all night while he 
describes a play he plans to write. 
Jonathan is captured and as he is 
leaving, he reminds his aunts that 
while they have twelve men buried in 
the cellar, he has killed twelve, thus 
making the score even. The police re- 
fuse to believe the dear old ladies guilty 
of any crime. The superintendent of 
an asylum comes at Mortimer's order 
to take away Teddy who thinks he is 
going to hunt in Africa. To be with 
Teddy, the aunts sign papers commit- 
ting themselves to the asylum. The 
final murder occurs as the aunts serve 
poison wine to the lonely superintend- 
ent, beating Jonathan's score thirteen 
to twelve. 

Top honors for acting go to Laura 
Hope Crews and Effie Shannon as the 
two charitable old maids, Abby and 
Martha Brewster, whose only foible is 
spiking each gallon of their elderberry 
wine with a teaspccnful of arsenic, 
a half teaspoonful of strychnine, and 
a pinch of cyanide. They succeed to 
perfection in conveying the qualities 
of amiableness and innocence of the 
elderly ladies. Miss Crews has had a 
long and varied career in Hollywood. 
Perhaps her best known role in the 
films was Aunt Pitty-pat in Gone with 
The Wind. Eric Von Stroheim also of 
the movies was the homicidal nephew, 
Jonathan Brewater. Forrest Orr 
as Teddy Brewster, who thinks he is 
Teddy Roosevelt, turned in an excel- 
lent performance and did much to- 
wards maintaining continuous hilar- 
ity throughout the play. Dr. Einstein, 
Jonathan's accomplice, was capably 
portrayed by Henry Sharp. Jack Whit- 
ing as the third nephew, Mortimer 
Brewster, who really wasn't a member 
of the Brewster family, but was a son 
of a former cook of the Misses Brew- 
ster, overstressed and forced his act- 
ing at the point when he discovers 
the corpse in the window seat and his 
aunts make their confession. Other- 
wise his was a fine performance. He 
and Angie Adams as his girl friend, 
Elaine Harper, afforded the love in- 
terest in the play. 

The highlight of the play was the 
scene near the final curtain when 
Abby and Martha, having learned that 
their nephew has also a dozen victims 
to his credit, turn their eyes on the 
elderly head of the asylum which is to 
be their destination. They exchange 
meaningful glances, approach him 
kindly and pour him out one last "lass 
of their elderberry wine, and he be- 
comes their thirteenth victim. 

The production was appropriately 
staged by Bretaigne Windust and Ray- 
mond Sovey provided the setting. 

of the spectators as a verbal battle 
ensued which seemed to have arisen 
when the frosh coaches asked to bor- 
row shoulder pads, head gears, etc., so 
that they could send in a substitute or 

Early in the second period Smith, a 
sophomore speed merchant put the 
ball in position by intercepting a frosh 
pass on the 40 and running it back to 
the 17. After circling right end for 
15 yards he crashed over the weak 
side of the line from the 2 for a touch- 
down. Smith added the extra point 
with a buck through the center of the 

The sophs bagged another touch- 
down later in the period after a sus- 
tained march from their own 40. 
Wolfe picked up 6 at right end. Alt- 
man's try at the same place was good 
for 15 yards and a first down. Wolfe 
and Keim picked up 4 to the 35. Kern's 
35 yard pass to Hummel in the end 
zone climaxed the march. Wolfe buck- 
ed over for the extra point. 

Good took Kern's kickoff on his 10 
and ran it back to the 40. After sev- 
eral unsuccessful attempts to gain by 
the Frosh, Good kicked to Zerbe on 
the soph 25. Zerbe and Smith collab- 
orated to pick up a first down on their 
35 as the first half ended. 

During the half the spirit of the 
frosh was kept at a high ebb by the 
fairer followers of the football fracas 
who by far seemed to favor a frosh 
victory. Pete Olenchuck, who will be 
remembered for his prowess on the 
gridiron in former years said when 
asked to comment on the game, quote 
"Marvelous game." 

Big Don Staley and George Wash- 
ington Smith, mentors of the frosh 
club, unleashed a tirade upon their 
charges for their spiritless play in the 
first half. Blind Man Matala and 
Schmaltzer, soph coaches, meanwhile, 
were encouraging their boys on the 
far side of the field beneath the press 
box. The players of both teams spent 
part of their rest period at half time 
imbibing and regurgitating water 
which was so nobly supplied by mem- 
bers of the frosh class. 

The start of the second half was 
delayed for several minutes until the 
pigskin could be retrieved from over 
the fence where some of the older 
boys had accidentally kicked it. Kern's 
kick was taken by Light, the latter 
running it back for 5 yards before he 
was stopped. A pass Good to Light 
was complete, but nullified because of 
off sides on the play. Good picked 
up 5 yards. Light's pass was inter- 
cepted by Hummel on the frosh 30. 

A few minutes later the sophs add- 
ed their third and final tally. The 
touchdown came as a result of a clever 
bit of running by diminutive Hen Alt- 
man. On successive sprints Altman, 
with the aid of neat blocking, put the 
ball on the frosh 15. The Philadel- 
phia lad then circled right end for the 
score. Wolfe's plunge for the extra 
point was stopped. 

Good took Zerbe's kick on the 20, 
running it back to the 30. After sev- 
eral frosh attempts failed to gain, 
Good kicked to Zerbe. With Zerbe, 
Wolfe and Kern carrying the ball, the 
sophs reeled off 2 first downs in 4 
plays. The sophomore line began to 
weaken as the frosh broke through to 
throw Zerbe for a loss of 8 yards. The 
sophs lost 5 more through an off sides 
penalty. Kern got back 8 and Zerbe 
3 as the frosh took possession of the 
ball. Zerbe was stopped in his tracks 
as he caught the frosh's quick kick. In 
the next two plays the upper class- 

Dutchmen Named to 
All-State Grid Team 

When the All-State College football 
team was named last week by sports 
writers and coaches of gridiron teams 
throughout Pennsylvania, three Leba- 
non Valley gridders were among these 
receiving honorable mention for their 
play against opponents of the Blue 
and White throughout the year. The 
trio of Dutchmen given mention in- 
cludes Captain Ralph Shay, Captain- 
elect Henry Schmaltzer, and Tony 

Shay, aggressive guard, was the 
workhouse on the L. V. C. forward 
wall in leading the Valleyites as Cap- 
tain throughout the season with his 
exemplary play. Schmaltzer, who only 
this week was elected by his team- 
mates to lead the Dutchmen in the 
1942 grid season, more than earned 
recognition for his outstanding per- 
formances at his left tackle post. Ven- 
tresca, freshman back, bowed into the 
limelight as the leading scorer on the 
Valley grid squad for the year.

men were pushed back 15 yards. 

In the fourth period a rejuvenated 
freshman team made their bid for rec- 
ognition. Delduco picked up 16 to the 
45. He was again good for 7 on the 
next play. Good hit the line for 3 
more. A pass, Delduco to Lloyd, made 
it first down on the soph 15. Rumpf 
picked up 2 and Lloyd added 3. The 
frosh drive goalward was halted when 
Miller intercepted Delduco's pass. At 
this point Beshore came on to the 
field in the guise of waterboy and 
gave the frosh boys some last minute 

As the game neared the close the 
frosh line kept charging in to spill 
Zerbe for a loss of 10 yards, 9 of 
which he got back on the next play. 
Altman was held for no gain; Kern 
paced off 11 making it first down on 
the 20. Zerbe picked up 3 and Alt- 
man got away for 15 as the final 
whistle sounded. 

To "Pewee" Miller, Neidig, Stine & 
Hummel go the plaudits for their fine 
defensive play. Hummel was especial- 
ly outstanding for his stellar play 
highlighted by his vicious tackles and 
heady signal calling. Altman, Kern 
and Zerbe were the leading ground 
gainers for the sophs with 88, 63 and 
44 yards respectively. For the frosh, 
Herb, Housel, Brulatour and Light 
looked good on defense. Light came 
in from safety position more than 
once to stop a soph back who seemed 
in the clear. Good and Delduco were 
the leading frosh ground gainers.

behavior to the proper authorities. Th? 
Axis policy of infiltration is so well 
known that this warning may not be 
necessary. It is our patriotic duty to 
be loyal to our government even in 
the slightest respect and to be vigi- 
lant in detecting disloyal utterances 
and activities. 

3. Be cooperative with government- 
al and college authorities in enrolling 
i- n some definite defense activity. Not 
every student can be on the front line 
— .it is neither possible nor desirable 
that all should bear arms. It is just 
as hysterical to run immediately to a 
recruiting office as it is to run away 
from all responsibility. Every student 
should calmly consider where his place 
is now. Uncle Sam will let us know 
at the nroper time if he wants us to 
be elsewhere. In the meanwhile there 
are important duties to be done at 
home. Civilians are usually more ex 
posed to danger than soldiers. On 
Monday evening at 7 :45 o'clock, in 
Room 5 of the Administration Build- 
ing, certain faculty members and stu- 
dents will report for consultation with 
representatives of the Lebanon Coun- 
ty Council of National Defense. Every 
student will be asked to assume some 
measure of personal responsibility for 
purposes of defending the civilian pop- 
ulation against certain dangers that 
attend modern warfare. 

4. Be proficient in your studies. One 
of the most popular songs used during 
the first World War was "Keep the 
Home Fires Burning." This summar- 
izes our immediate duty. We must 
back our armed forces with all the re- 
sources at our command and at the 
same time prepare for the peace which 
is to follow. The words of President 
Roosevelt read at the convention of 
the American College Publicity Asso- 
ciation in Berkley, California, last 
August are especially apropos: "The 
message I would emphasize to you this 
year is that America will always need 
men and women with college training. 
Government and industry alike need 
skilled technicians today. Later we 
shall need men and women of broad 
understanding and special aptitudes 
to serve as leaders of the generation 
which must manage the post-war pe- 
riod. We must, therefore, redouble 
our efforts during these critical times 
to make our schools and colleges ren- 
der ever more efficient service in sup- 
port of our cherished democratic insti- 
tutions." Superficiality and medio- 
crity are the marks of educational 
weaklings and slackers. The play boy 
sabotages his own opportunity for the 
acquisition of real scholarship for 
himself and often does the same thing 
for his companions. Some students 
choose extra curricular activities un- 
wisely or participate in them harm- 
fully with a tremendous waste of time 
and energy, resources which should be 
devoted to more valuable activities. 
It is now time for some of us to get 
out of the side shows and walk into 
the main tent. Only as faculty mem- 
bers and students manifest a patri- 
otic zeal for promoting educational ef- 
ficiency on the campus of Lebanon 
Valley College can we justify our re- 
maining here during this supreme 
testing period of American history. I 
challenge you to planning, honest 
scholarly effort, and willing discipline. 
The world has always needed, now 
needs, and always will need such per- 
sons. This war will not last forever, 
and it is your patriotic duty and privi- 
lege to qualify for positions of leader- 
ship in the new democratic order that 
will eventuate when the rising sun of 
Japan finally goes down. 

5. Be economical. Frugality W ]] 
likely be forced upon us, but we 
voluntarily reduce many of our ^ 
penses and make smaller amounts 
money go much further. Your parent! 
will be exposed to higher taxes a a 
increased costs due to inflation. E v 
college expenses may have to be \^ 
creased if the costs of living and c 
labor continue to rise. Various for » 
of student assistance, especially the 
N. Y. A., will be decreased or ev en 
tually eliminated, and you will sureb 
need every cent you and your parent- 
may possess. But college costs mav 
be kept down by taking good care f 
the college buildings and equipm ent 
Turn off all unnecessary lights and 
running 1 faucets. Eat your meals i 
the dining hall, where you pay f w 
them, instead of spending money need 
lessly for food elsewhere. Stay on the 
campus over the week-end instead of 
imposing additional expense on y 0Ur 
parents. By all means eliminate your 
expensive social affairs, which many 
of you can scarcely afford even in 
normal times. Learn that it is possi- 
ble to have a good time without ex- 
cessive spending. It is our patriotic 
duty to wear our clothes and operate 
our automobiles for a longer period 
of time. This will enable us to have 
the wherewithal to finance the more 
necessary articles and services and 
will, in addition, enable us to buy some 
saving stamps and possibly a defense 
bond now and then. If poverty ever 
needed to throw away its stilts, it is 

6. Be morally and spiritually fit. 
Physical fitness, as desirable as it is 
for purposes of national defense, is 
not so important as moral and spirit- 
ual fitness. We must be individual ex- 
ponents of the motto, "In God is our 
trust." Democracy functions well only 
when the majority are educated and 
good. The Christian college exists to 
combine in the higher educational pro- 
cesses these two great sine qua non's 
of popular government. In his Fare- 
well Address George Washington said: 
"Of all the dispositions and habits 
which lead to political prosperity, re- 
ligion and morality are indispensable 
supports. In vain would that man 
claim the tribute of patriotism who 
should labor to subvert these great 
pillars of human happiness — these 
firmest props of the duties of men and 
citizens. Let us with caution indulge 
the supposition that morality can be 
maintained without religion." It is 
not what a man does not believe, but 
what he does believe that is signifi- 
cant for life: negations are fruitless; 
affirmations are productive. Your gen- 
eration has been taught to question 
everything, to believe that every posi- 
tion is but tentative. However, man 
cannot live on hypotheses, and con- 
stantly shifting positions do not gi ve 
one a sense of security. Even an mi- 
perfect belief is better than no belief- 
A philosophy of life that makes the 
universe and the student's place m lj 
meaningful and a religious experience 
that is the expression of the student s 
trust in God are necessary to complex 
and integrate any system of educa 
tion worth the name. Christianity an 
democracy both posit the supreme 
value of the individual, and in the '* 
purest forms they are complements . 
to each other. It is our patriotic dn J 
to actualize the exalted individual & 
social ideals of the Bible, to avail 
selves of the ministries of the Chn1 ^ 
and to support and participate m 
religious activities of the ca ,^ 
When our former students are m 
minent peril, when we ourselves ^ 
be called upon to face death as ci ^ 
ians or as soldiers, surely smart 

who scoff at religion will not be a 
to prevent our turning to a moi ^ 
ous consideration of the consols^

Rushing season is over; and, if this 
year is to go as previous years have 
lot some time, the literary societies 
ar e now in the process of crawling 
into their dens for that long period 
i hibernation and repose which they 
enjoy every term. Those dreary win- 
ter months which find every student 
m ore than desirous of a bit of fun and 
frolic to set off the studies in the 
right light are again demanding a ful- 
fillment of that desire. Nevertheless, 
tnel r demands are a bit late, I fear; 
already the Sand Man has spread his 
lethal dust about this campus, and 
put every organization known as a lit- 
erary society among its sweet dreams 
of that big dinner dance which comes 
but once a year. 

Yours Truly has a very bad habit 
of looking back to the days when he 
too was a low and humble freshman. 
He had been schooled among such 
classics as the Tom Swift Series in 
which you read of the great affairs 
which are thrown by fraternities, or : 
as we have it, societies. In fact the 
college fraternity of literature is a 
magnificent combination of a collegi 
ate Elks club, a Masonic Order, a jam 
session, and the corner cigar store 
Knowing that such books are given to 
slight exaggerations in spots, we had 
not swallowed the hook as well as the 
bait, but we really expected to find 
something of this sort upon our ar- 
rival in Annville. And we weren't at 
all disappointed when we were swept 
about by an inimitable rushing season 
But . . . (here's where we were caught 
too) ... we came back after Thanks 
giving vacation all set for another 
round of social functions only to be 
so disappointed and thwarted by our 
actual experience that there was al 
most a mental relapse. We did finally 
pull out of it, however, feeling just 
about well enough to finish the year. 

Now maybe the societies were meant 
to be that way. Perhaps your column 
ist has never gotten near enough to 
the inside track to realize that part 
of the program of every good literary 
society is to pull a large-scale April 
Pool in November. However, this does 
not coincide with this columnist's con- 
cept of the aims of a literary society. 
In my opinion there should be, in an- 
swer to my question, "What's next on 
the program?" a schedule of social 
activities for this campus, sponsored 
% the societies and continuing thru- 
out the winter. Obviously enough, ali 

these programs should not, and ever. 
c °uld not, be dances. We are not ad- 
vocating that L. V. C. be turned into 
a dancing school. On the contrary, 
We would like to see a variated pro- 
^am. There are myriads of possibili- 

es along the line of good entertain 
^ts that might be utilized.

Disc Data 

The music of Ludwig Van Beetho- 
ven has always been among the great 
est in the world ; but never before has 
his music been so popular as it is to- 
day. When some one mentions the 
word symphony most people think of 
Beethoven's Fifth; now probably the 
best known symphony ever written 
The temper of the times has been the 
motivating factor in bringing this one, 
among some of his other symphonies, 
into greater popularity. Beethoven's 
music for the most part is a music of 
sheer force; with its massive bass 
passages and thundering chords that 
are best brought out by our modern 
symphony orchestras. This force in 
his music is exemplified by the fact 
that his Fifth Symphony has been 
chosen as a victory theme because of 
its first four notes, and their similar 
ity to the International Morse Code 
letter V; three dots and a dash. It is 
most certainly a marvelous coincidence 
that a great symphonic theme and a 
part of the main link between all the 
nations of the world, the Morse Code, 
should unite in one expression for vie 
tory of democracy over the totalitar 
ian powers. All nations and all people 
know and understand music; all na- 
tions also understand the Morse Code; 
a more forceful combination could not 
have been found. Beethoven's Fifth 
Symphony is not the only one however, 
that expresses triumph and power. 
The Ninth Symphony in D Minor, 
sometimes know as the Choral Sym- 
phony, is equally notable in these 
characteristics. This work was written 
on commission for the Philharmonic 
Society of London, and was first per- 
formed in the Kaerntnerthor Theatre 
in Vienna on May 7, 1824. The com- 
position was immediately pronounced 
a success, but its ultimate recognition 
was only to come years later. Richard 
Wagner exalted the work with works 
spoken and written. 

At its initial performance one of 
the most interesting incidents of 
Beethoven's life took place. Being 
totally deaf he was unaware of the 
tremendous ovation he was receiving 
until one of the soloists turned him 
around to face the audience. This is 
the last and most likely the greatest 
symphony ever written by Beethoven. 
It reaches the ultimate in ability of 
musical expression and perfection; no 
more prodigious task was ever com- 
pleted by any composer. This crown- 
ing achievement of Beethoven's career 
is written in four movements: the 
first three are entirely instrumental 
and embody all the qualities typical 
of such a master. The fourth and final 
movement surpasses the preceding 
three in a fitting climax which pre- 
sents the choral version of Schiller's 
Ode to Joy that magnificent utterance 
on the brotherhood of man. 

To present this work in public is a 
formidable task and therefore music 
lovers are prevented from hearing it 
very often. The next best way of hear- 
ing this composition is of course 
through the medium of records. Your 
columnist suggests the Columbia al- 
bum No. 227 which presents the work 
in sixteen parts on eight records by 
Felix Weingartner and the Vienna 
Philharmonic Orchestra with the 
Choral work done by the Vienna State 
Opera Chorus. The recording is of 
excellent quality leaving nothing to be 
desired. The interpretation of the 
work should be perfect, for Weingart- 
ner is the greatest living interpreter 
of Beethoven; and his book on this 
subject is required reading by all 
symphonic musicians. 

Chemists Turn South 

On Educational Trip 

The Baltimore plant of the Ameri- 
can Refining and Smelting Company 
and the Smithsonian Institute at 
Washington, D. C, will be the princi- 
pal points of interest of the trip plan- 
ned by the Chemistry Club for this 
Friday and Saturday, December 11 
and 12. According to the plans made 
by Robert Ness, trip committee chair- 
man, and Russel Horst, president of 
the organization, a group of approxi- 
mately twenty individuals, including 
Dr. Bender and Dr. Porter, will leave 
Annville at 10:15 o'clock Friday morn- 
ing. The afternoon will be spent in 
Baltimore in viewing one of the larg- 
est foundries of its kind in the coun- 
try. Friday evening the group will 
continue to the nation's capital, where 
it will visit the Smithsonian Institute 
throughout the day on Saturday. For 
those who find it impossible to make 
the entire trip, plans have been made 
to have part of the group return Fri- 
day evening after visiting the Balti- 
more plant. 

At the reegular monthly meeting 
of the club last Tuesday evening in 
the chem lecture room, George Zeig- 
ler presented a very interesting and 
"mysterious" demonstration, prepared 
by himself and Mr. Horst, on Chemi- 
cal "Magic." This was featured by a 
chemical patriotic display. Also in- 
cluded on the program were talks by 
Leroy Yeats on Chemical News and 
Ruth Haverstock on Alchemy.

ing when a party to welcome the new 
members into the society took place. 
A German band featuring Vienna 
waltzes, singing, other musical num- 
bers, charades, and a comedy act made 
up the entertainment. 

Serving as mistress of ceremonies 
was Betty Minnich. The special fea- 
ture, the German band, was led by 
Louise Boger and consisted of Marion 
Leininger, Mary Herr, Evelyn Ling, 
Garneta Seavers, Mary Grace Light, 
Emma Catherine Miller, Irma Shol- 
ley. Betty Grube led all the Delphians 
in singing Schnitzelbunk. Charades 
were given by the new members, while 
Martha Wilt and Verna Stonecipher 
collaborated in giving a novelty com- 
edy act. A clarinet trio made up of 
Evelyn Ling, Garneta Seavers, and 
Pauline Smee; a vocal trio consisting 
of Mary Grace Light, Jane Gruber, 
and Irma Sholley; and a violin solo- 
ist, Louise Boger, rounded out the ev- 
ening's program by their musical num- 

Chairman of the party, Phyllis 
Deitzler, selected as her committees: 
Elizabeth Sattazahn, refreshments; 
Jane Gruber, decorations; and Vir- 
ginia Bernhardt, invitations. These 
chairmen arranged the party in keep- 
ing with the holiday spirit by decor-

German Club Holds 

Christmas Meeting 

Last evening the Gorman Club met 
in a Christmas session. After a brief 
business period, the program of the 
evening was turned over to the pro- 
gram chairman, Robert V. Mays. This 
Yuletide meeting of the Club is us- 
ually the most colorful and best at- 
tended of any in the entire year, and 
last night's session proved no excep- 

The members expressed in their 
very best German (idionsabe) their 
desires to der Weirnachtsmann. After 
this Hans Uberseder read a descrip- 
tion of a traditional German celebra- 
tion. As a fitting conclusion to the 
program the members gathered about 
the piano and sang "Stille Nacht" and 
many other German Christmas carols 
and songs. 

The club was delightfully enter- 
tained by tasty refreshments which 
were provided by Dr. Lietzau. With 
cries of "Frohliche Weihnaekn" the 
members took leave of each other.

I. R C. Views Events 

In Pacific Crisis 

On Monday evening, December 8, 
the International Relations Club gave 
vent to its pent-up enthusiasm over 
the rapid turn of events with Japan. 
The scheduled topic concerning Russia 
was abandoned in favor of the sub- 
ject on everyone's mind. Despite the 
maze of fragmentary knowledge with 
Which they were equipped, the mem- 
bers and guests entered into che dis- 
cussion freely. 

Ralph Shay, the program chairman 
for the evening, opened the meeting 
by outlining the events of the last 
week leading up to the outbreak of 
war and open declarations. Professor 
Frederick Miller, the club adviser, 
then injected a resume of the latest 
radio dispatches from Honolulu, Man- 
ila, and San Francisco. He passed out 
several propaganda papers published 
by the Japan News Week last April, 
which he had just received. At this 
point the meeting was thrown open 
for comment, during which period Dr. 
Clyde Stine entered into the conver- 
sation as well as a majority of those
